EDITORS COMMENTS
The Sirdars Advance to Fashoda, landing Troops after the Bombardment of Dem Zeki" is a captivating lithograph by Frank Craig that depicts a significant moment in history. The scene showcases the intense military operation carried out by British forces along the River Nile during the Sudanese campaign. In this print, we witness an array of ships and nuggers maneuvering through the river as troops disembark onto enemy territory. The bombardment of Dem Zeki has just taken place, leaving behind smoke and destruction in its wake. The dervishes, depicted on their own steamer Safia, are seen retreating under heavy fire from the advancing Sirdars flotilla. The artist's attention to detail brings this historical event to life. From the paddle wheels churning up water to soldiers strategically positioned on each vessel, every element contributes to an atmosphere charged with tension and determination. This illustration was originally published in The Graphic on October 15th, 1898. It serves as a visual record of bravery and military strategy employed during this critical period. Through Craig's skillful engraving technique, viewers can almost hear the sounds of gunfire and feel the adrenaline coursing through these brave soldiers' veins. "The Sirdars Advance to Fashoda" lithograph stands as a testament to human resilience and courage amidst conflict. It reminds us of our shared history while also serving as a reminder that peace often comes at great cost.
