Kitchener; Comprising, The Road To Omdurman; And, Saviour Of The Realm [PDF]

by John Charles Pollock
Good and solid biography of Lord Kitchener: K of K. It is the first of two, this one ending after the Boer War and with Kitchener going to India. Hope I can find part two with K in the years leading up to WWI and in those first years of the war.
The central theme of this bio is on K as a warrior without grudges against his enemies. Both in the Sudan and later in South-Africa, K managed to win the war on the battlefield (although SA was difficult, fighting a counter insurgency war against the Boer Commando's) and by drawing up the peace treaties at the end of the war, making sure that the erstwhile adversaries would get on rather well with each other at peace. The writer (John Pollock) wonders what would have happened had Kitchener lived through WWI to be able to make a gracious peace treaty at Versailles in 1919. Could K have nipped WWII in the bud? One wonders.......
Kitchener comes out of this book somewhat larger than life
