Charles Townshend (British Army officer)

Major General Sir Charles Vere Ferrers Townshend, (21 February 1861 – 18 May 1924) was a British Imperial soldier who during the First World War led an overreaching military campaign in Mesopotamia, which led to the defeat and destruction of his command. Known as the Siege of Kut, it lasted from December 1915 to April 1916 and was possibly the worst suffered by the Allies during the war. Forced to surrender, Townshend was held as a prisoner of war on Prinkipo, although he was treated like an esteemed guest, before being released in October 1918. Provided by Wikipedia
