From the publisher: For more than 30 years, the Nile River gunboat was an indispensible tool of empire, policing the great river as a floating symbol of British imperial power. They participated in every significant colonial campaign in the region, from the British invasion of Egypt in 1882 to the Battle of Omdurman in 1898, as Great Britain fought to regain control of the Sudan. The gunboats were key in safeguarding British interests around the headwaters of the Nile, a region hotly contested by several European powers.
