In popular perception, Lord Kitchener is inescapably associated with the famous 1914 recruiting poster. But what lay behind the moustache? This critically acclaimed biography, now fully updated, throws light on his Irish childhood, his years as a biblical archaeologist, his victory at Khartoum, his struggle with Lord Curzon for control of India, his critical role in the First World War, and his mysterious death at sea, revealing a caring nature at odds with his fierce public image.
