In 1882, the British invaded Egypt in an audacious war that gave them control of the country, and the Suez Canal, for more than seventy years. In 'A Tidy Little War', William Wright gives the first full account of that hard-fought and hitherto neglected campaign, which was not nearly as 'tidy' as the British commander would later claim. Using unpublished documents and forgotten books, including the discovery of General Sir Garnet Wolseley's diaries, Wright highlights how the Egyptian War, climaxing in the dawn battle of Tel-el-Kebir, was altogether a close-run thing. These documents offer an intriguing perspective of the General's handling of the war and his relationship with his war staff. The war was the major combined services operation of the late Victorian era, it saw the Royal Navy sail into battle for the last time in its old glory and the book has the first full account of the Bombardment of Alexandria.
