Most English towns have a 'Havelock Street', 'Square' or 'Road' - why? The answer as to why townsfolk should enthusiatically rename their streets after a Victorian General is to be found in this gripping biography of Henry Havelock, the hero of the Siege of Lucknow.

Henry Havelock was a respected soldier in the British army in India, where he served for most of his career. He was a pioneer in the giving away of bibles to soldiers and organising bible studies.

A grateful nation recognised him with a knighthood and a statue at Trafalgar Square in the centre of London. When he died, from the wounds he received at Lucknow, a public holiday was declared and the nation mourned.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This is not a book for the squeamish: horrible crimes were committed in the Mutiny and terrible vengeance was exacted. But above all the blood and thunder, no reader can fail to find inspiration in Havelock's example."

-- David Watson, English Churchman

...John Pollock's biographies are invariably meticulously researched, godly and well-earthed. Way to Glory is no exception. It is probably the most inspiring biography of a British evangelical Christian officer that has ever been written. It can be recommended without reserve.

-- Brigadier Ian Dobbie, Evangelicals Now
