When the Great War broke out, Kitchener, with the foresight lacking in many of his contemporaries, insisted that it would last at least three years and that he must raise an army of 3 million men. This began with an immediate recruitment of 100,000 volunteers, and the familiar poster campaign image of him with the line "Your country needs you". Major battles and initiatives of the Great War are recreated in a dramatic narrative history which does justice to Kitchener's masterly planning. This superb double volume biography will transform our view of Kitchener and the First World.

Kitchener stands splendidly moustachioed on the cover of John Pollock's biography, looking as upright, clear-eyed and fascistically handsome as the values he represented. This is the first volume of a projected two-volume biography of the man whose iconic pointing finger picked out ordinary men to fight in World War One, and although it only goes up to 1902, there is plenty of Imperial adventure to keep the reader happy.
