200th Blogpost - Gordon Pascha - The Hero of Khartoum

Hi Guys!
 
That's a coincidence indeed. Right now I have my 200th post. For me, this is something special and I want to dedicate him one or two men. The first is the history known as Major General Charles Gordon, better known as Chinese Gordon and Gordon Pasha.

This man may be regarded controversial, to quote Winston Churchill.
But yet he had a property which constitutes a good soldier and general, namely trust, believe and courage.

Whether the legends about him are correct or not, he has impressed me, me, a little boy from Germany, whose historically conditioned upbringing of his own country has literally blown away, these properties.
On January 26, 2015 his death is 130 years ago, but the world is not better then the time of his life. There are two Links to wikipedia. First in german, and the second in english: Gordon Pascha (Ger.)  and  Gordon Pascha (Engl.). My feeling is that Gordon had a solid feel to its creator, not in vain, he made his own thoughts, around the Christ.
 
The second man I want to say thank you is Charlton Heston. Also, he is not without controversy, but for me a lot of good actors in the roles played, especially historical.

In my opinion one of his best, if not the best, the lone general in the deep dark Sudan. The general standing alone and knows that he will not get the help at the right time, if ever. There are the Links: Charlton Heston (Engl.) and Charlton Heston (Ger.).

Thank you, Mr. Heston!
Hope you enjoy my 200th post!
 
Greetings and so long
Gordon

Congrats on your 200th post! Funny I was just going to feature Khartoum on my "War Movie Wednesday" post this week, but sadly it was deleted on youtube.

Great movie starring a great actor that introduced me to a great historical figure! :-)
