Dervish.The rise and fall of an African Empire.


At the zenith of British Colonial power, a local holy war against the tyranny of Turkish /Egyptian overlords, led by a sudanese religious leader called Mahdi,spread in the 1880,s to engulf a million square miles of arid desert territory. This is a story of great courage, great endurance and, at times, great evel. The courage of the Dervish,s may have been equalled but has certainly never been surpassed in human history.
