General Gordon of Khartoum - The Last Victorian Hero

General Charles Gordon - a man who achieved incredible success in China and the Sudan, and changed the world as we know it today. Even though he was the most famous man in the world, and Queen Victoria's favorite General, he rejected all fame and glory. He was the quirkiest General of his time, intuitively brilliant, and he would become one of the innovative Christian philanthropists of his era.
