"Cassell's History of the War in the Soudan"

..."apologies" for the dearth of posts this year to date...  well...  actually, not an apology as such, just a statement I'm too damn busy to post... 

What I did spot however was the following on one of the excellent series of posts [clicky] that construes this years "Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge".. no not the awesome (as the young people say) paint job on the Camel Corps, but the reference to a text I'd not come across before, "Cassell's History of the War in the Soudan".


Written by James Grant, and published in 1885, its available as a free download in multiple formats here [clicky] and is chock full of original sources.. fill yer boots...

    1. Cheers Carlo - not something I suspect I'll read cover to cover, but the pictures are well worth it..

  2. Camel Corps, drool. Wanna do these in 1/72 but of course the HaT figures are unobtainable at a price less than 28mm metals.
