The Life of Lord Kitchener

Lord Kitchener’s commanding image on British recruitment posters of the First World War is one of the most iconic pictures in history. Hackwood traces Kitchener’s early life and imperial campaigns, from childhood in Ireland to RMA Woolwich, and on into Egypt, Sudan and India. Weaving the political with the military and strewn with insights from those who encountered Kitchener, this period biography is a fascinating insight into a Hero of the Empire and British attitudes of the era.
