The involvement of an Australian colonial military force in Britain's Egyptian campaigns between 1883 and 1885 was very short, extending for only five months overall, including the pre-deployment phase. Consequently its influence on these campaigns was insignificant.
Nevertheless, the involvement in the Sudan in 1885 is part of Australia's military history. This book provides the context for Australia's involvement in the Sudan, and follows operations chronologically. The call in the 1880s for jihad or 'holy war' by Sudanese leaders shows us that some of our current global challenges are not new. Full color throughout, highly illustrated.
