The Sudan




The opening phase of the Sudan wargame this past Friday night. I commanded the Anglo-Egyptian force nearest the viewer. My task was to take the village in the mid-distance. Unfortunately, my force didn't last too long...

The British relief column can just be made out in the distance top center of the photo. The main Mahdist column can be seen at top left. This would give the British column a lot of grief before being driven off.

Nice photo--do you know who snapped it by chance? ;)

Sorry the Mahdists overwhelmed your forces. Better luck next game.

The photo was taken by a mysterious lady, a visitor from St. Louis... =)
