Scope and Contents

165 x 114 mm. A view showing a section of the battlefield after the second phase, the ground littered with dervish corpses. The Khalifa lost a staggering 11,000 men killed and 16,000 wounded at Omdurman. Anglo-Egyptian losses totalled 48 killed and 382 wounded. (However, the Mahdist losses have been, and continue to be, a matter for dispute).
