Kitchener – The Man Not the Myth

Kitchener

In contrast to the existing biographies which treat Kitchener as British, the author of Kitchener: The Man considers him an outsider within the British establishment. Of his 64 years, a mere eleven, and those not consecutive, were spent in England. He learned from those around him, ways that were not always understood and appreciated by those educated in England. Using the existing biographies on Kitchener as a starting point, Kitchener: The Man looks beyond his military exploits to consider who Kitchener was, and how he came to be the person we think we know. Archival and autobiographical accounts of contemporaries who encountered and worked with Kitchener have been used to confirm and challenge accepted perceptions.

In doing so, consideration is given to his skills, interests, beliefs and relationships. Kitchener: The Man charts his development from birth in Ireland to education in Europe, training at Woolwich, and what he learnt from his military experiences. It considers his relationships with Free Masonry, journalists, politicians, subordinates, and women. His sense of history, cultural awareness, and foresight made him a man ahead of his time. For all his faults, Kitchener was loyal, dependable, sensitive and the best man for the job in 1914.
