    I had the ending spoiled for me by my previous read to this journal, Safety Last, when the author, Lt Col Stirling, DSO OBE, mentions the first memory I have of national importance was, not unnaturally, the death of Gordon 3 The day I bought Safety Last, I spotted The Journals of General Gordon at Kartoum I didn t buy it then, but perused it It was kinda expensive at 40, but after reading that line from Stirling, I went back the next day and got this book.Hadn t realized when I bought it I had the ending spoiled for me by my previous read to this journal, Safety Last, when the author, Lt Col Stirling, DSO OBE, mentions the first memory I have of national importance was, not unnaturally, the death of Gordon 3 The day I bought Safety Last, I spotted The Journals of General Gordon at Kartoum I didn t buy it then, but perused it It was kinda expensive at 40, but after reading that line from Stirling, I went back the next day and got this book.Hadn t realized when I bought it that it was an actual 1885 copy So I read it carefully It s in pretty good shape for a 100 year old book The journals were actually six journals, daily input by the governor general, sent back at intervals to her majesty s government to inform them of the state of affairs in the Soudan spelling then, with requisite British u As one reads these journals one sees and feels the coming doom General Gordon seems just in his concerns and critiques of HM s government Sure we re getting his side, but the accompanying editorial comments, at least in my copy, give some context The maps and drawings by the author are a great addition make sure the edition you get includes them Gordon proves his military acumen If only his government cared as much about the Sudanese For the record 40 plus the previous 2019 expenditure on read books 22 means I m at 62 this calendar year
