    SIR GEORGE ARTHUR'S account of the work of the eminent soldier and administrator whois the subject of his three volumes is impressive not only on account of the series of successes which Lord Kitchener obtained in different and dissimilar fields, but also because of the methods by which so much was attained, for the biography is presented with such vividness that the careful reader can discern the man apart from his work. It is true that many of the episodes in the career of Lord Kitchener are mentioned with scarcely a comment, where expansion would have been desirable. Nevertheless, there is sufficient for interest and instruction in the mere relation of the stirring events in which he played so prominent a part. To have dealt with them in detail would perhaps have unduly expanded the volumes.
