Dear All

Just to let you know my next book, The Sirdar and The Khalifa: Kitchener's Re-conquest of Sudan, 1896-1898, is now available to pre-order from Amazon. It should also start appearing at other bookshops in the very near future.

The UK release date is set to 11 May 2017. As soon as I know more about international publication dates I will post below.

Congratulations Mark, well done! The book jacket designer has certainly chosen an arresting image that should catch the eyes of prospective buyers and follow them around the book store, resulting in bonus sales!

Cheers,

Mark

Thanks, Mark! I supplied four images to my publisher for the cover and thankfully they went for the two I wanted most included. Fonthill Media certainly do some striking book cover designs.

Dear All

In addition to the above, I have a second book being published this year entitled Chitral 1895: An Episode of the Great Game. As the title suggests, this book examines the siege and subsequent relief expeditions of this North West Frontier campaign against the back drop of Britain's Great Game with Russia. As details become available from my publisher, I will let you know more in due course.

Great News thoroughly enjoyed reading 'Pathan Uprising - Jihad on the North West Frontier 1897-98.'
Having spent more years than I care to remember studying the Re-Conquest of The Sudan I look forward to reading your new book. 'The canvas is large, the distance immense, the heat almost unbearable, send more soda sparklets......'

Had pre-ordered and now awaiting delivery. Enjoyed Pathan Rising so looking forward to this offering, Mark. (Chitral also pre-ordered). Simner, Snook and Wright seem to be featuring increasingly in my library - keep it up. Looking forward to one or two on China Wars........
