Overview

A collection of Sir James Robertson's letters to Graham Thomas over nearly 40 years. The letters serve as historical documents with insight into the problems of the end of empire, notably in the Sudan, but covering a wide field of post-imperial history as seen by one of the greatest figures in imperial government.
