A blow by blow account of Winston’s bloodiest battle
On September 2, 1898, on the plain outside the Sudanese city of Omdurman, Colonel Martin of the 21st Lancers gave the order, “Charge!” Lieutenant Winston Churchill, aged twenty-three, rode with the 21st. Afterwards, over 100 men of the 440-strong regiment were dead or badly wounded, slashed or pierced by sword and spear, but they had driven away 2800 enemy warriors.
Blood, blood, blood everywhere – Lieutenant Robert Smyth.
In Winston’s Charge the officers and men of the 21st tell their own story, alongside Churchill’s. In their graphic accounts, we come close to experiencing the mad dash of the charge, the clash with the enemy, and the bloody carnage that followed.
