The March to Magdala
By: G. A. Henty (1868)

As Special Correspondent for the Standard newspaper, Mr. Henty chronicles the March from Annesley Bay to Magdala. This 400 mile ordeal was a logistical nightmare during which the British emerged victorious over the terrain, the human enemy being a minor difficulty. With rich description of the country through which this March was made, this account is a brilliant, in depth description of the determination and endurance of the British Army and also of some of its foibles and weaknesses.
