Charles George Gordon gained universal respect and affection in the slums of urban Victorian Britain fighting on spiritual battlegrounds. Later, he obtained the same reputation as he commanded Chinese, Egyptian and African (but never British) troops in battle, to become a British military hero.
He died while trying to save Khartoum from fire and sword in 1885. The subsequent outpouring of national grief was so powerful that Prime Minister Gladstone feared it could bring down his government.
