George Warrington Steevens (1859-1900), British journalist, "the most famous war correspondent of his time." He wrote for the National Observer, The Pall Mall Gazette, and the Daily Mail. He was attached to the British forces during the Madist War in the Sudan, and was with them in South Africa during the Second Boer War in 1899. He died from typhoid in the siege of Ladysmith.

This book is his record of Kitchener's conquest of the Sudan from his perspective as a member of Kitchener's inner circle. The events are known as the Madhist Revolt, or the Second Anglo-Sudan War of 1896-1899.
