First edition of this "attempt to bring together in the convenient form of a narrative the leading features of the present Frontier disturbances to the end of the Mohamand Campaign" of 1897 (preface). Winston Churchill accompanied the punitive expedition, commanded by Major-General Sir Bindon Blood, as a second lieutenant and war correspondent for the Daily Telegraph. During the campaign he "took part in several skirmishes in which he came under fire and witnessed acts of barbarism by both sides" and wrote The Story of the Malakand Field Force (1898) based on his experiences during the campaign (ODNB). An uncommon work, with just three copies traced institutionally in the UK.
