Younghusband, Troubled Campaign

Front Cover
India Research Press, 2005 - History - 212 pages

Rather than the interpersonal or interdepartmental rivalries that existed at that time, the writer looks at matters military with particular reference to his own Battalion - which played a key role in bringing the treaty with Tibet to its natural conclusion. The narrative is narrowed down to the point of view of military man and military etiquette. The evocative, atmospheric photographs speak for themselves
