The Tragedy of Lord Kitchener

Evidence

"I"ve just read Lord Esher"s book about Lord Kitchener which is a very interesting human document, isn"t it. What a very big figure he just failed to be. Yet he did play a great part and if ever I meet his shade I should make it a curtsey. He was a greater man than I knew — it"s a pity he didn"t have a better biographer than Sir George Arthur."
