Be careful of this book because my experience is that new editions are bowdlerized with the pages in which he gives his opinion of Islam removed.  I’d order it from Waterstone’s in the U.K. maybe.  Otherwise I have to say a fantastic read.  I particularly enjoyed the fact that the British/Egyptian Army, who after all had prisoners literally skinned alive by these people, got close enough to see the Mahdi’s tomb, their enemy’s holiest of holy Moslem sites, they shelled it day after to in order to infuriate the pests.
