Excerpt from The Great World War, Vol. 6: A History

The ¿ood season on the Tigris always lasts until May, and Sir Percy Lake, the British commander-ia-chief, well knew that any further attempt to save General Townshend and his garrison must be made before then, or be too late. Major-general Sir G. F. Gorringe, who succeeded General Aylmer on March 12, 1916, was one of Kitchener's men - he had.acted as his aidede-camp after distinguishing himself in the Khartoum expedition and superintending the reconstruction of Gordon's recaptured citadel - and Could be depended upon to do all that was humanly possible in the Circumstances. Fresh troops had ar rived Since the repulse at ES Sinn, and as soon as this reinforcement was complete it was decided to make a fresh start. Unfortunately it was no longer feasible to advance on Kut by the route across the right or southern bank of the Tigris, careful investigations showing that the whole of this area could be inundated, as explained in the preceding Chapter, by the breaking of the river bunds, which were under Turkish control. Preparations were accordingly made for an attack on the Hannah position, some 20 miles to the east of Kut, which had defied General Aylmer's attempt to force it in January, and then, if successful, to advance thence along the left or northern bank.
