Editorial Review
In this sweeping 1920 biography of Horatio Herbert Kitchener, better known as Lord Kitchener, Sir George Arthur shines a bright light on the British military leader and statesman who, during World War I, organized armies on an unprecedented scale and became famous as the face on British recruitment posters. Originally published as a three-volume set, it is presented here in an omnibus edition. Volume I covers Kitchener's birth in Ireland in 1850 to his placement as commander-in-chief of the Boer War in 1900. Volume II continues with his years in India, his pro-consulship in Egypt, and his departure for England in 1914 on the eve of World War I. Volume III documents his many campaigns and recruitment efforts during World War I until his dramatic death at sea in 1916. Written only four years after his death, this valuable historical account by a friend and contemporary offers a look behind the handlebar mustache and pointing finger of the man whose "Your country needs YOU" posters later inspired those of the United States during World War II. British writer SIR GEORGE ARTHUR (1860-1946) also wrote A Septuagenarian's Scrapbook, Not Worth Reading, and the three-volume Life of Lord Kitchener.
