KITCHENER: The Man Not the Myth
This new profile of Kitchener considers him an outsider within the British establishment. Of his 64 years, a mere 11, and those not consecutive, were spent in England. He learned from those around him, ways that were not always understood and appreciated by those educated in England. Includes 10 b/w photos, 4 maps, and 6 tables.
Consideration is given to his skills, interests, beliefs, and relationships -- charting his development from birth in Ireland to education in Europe, training at Woolwich, and what he learnt from his military experiences. It considers his relationships with Free Masonry, journalists, politicians, subordinates, and women. His sense of history, cultural awareness, and foresight made him a man ahead of his time. For all his faults, Kitchener was loyal, dependable, sensitive, and the best man for the job in 1914.
