Well, perhaps I was just a bit too greedy, like a boy so happy with his ice cream that he would like to have an even bigger one, if possible!
Seriously, I do agree with you ,selling price must always be a primary consideration for any commercial publication , and this book is absolutely exceptional value for money, and it is definitely the best researched and the most visually appealing book on the First Sudan War I have seen.
Talking about encouragement....: any chance we might see , even in a remote future, a "follow-up" volume with an account of the Nile Frontier, the "between the wars" years, and the Omdurman campaign? - yes, I know: I am still asking for too much - but such a work would really be "The definitive complete history of the Sudan Campaigns!!"
