Churchill and the Mad Mullah of Somaliland
Available in Stock
Stirring up the nomadic people of Somaliland, the 'Mad Mullah' Sayyid Mohammed Abdullah Hassan was a thorn in the side of the British for over 20 years. With an uncompromising message and rare oratorical power, he inspired an army of followers to support his anti-colonial, anti-Christian cause. This history describes the emergence and campaigns of the charismatic leader and the efforts of the British, in particular the outspoken politician and latterly War Minister Winston Churchill, to subdue him.
