About this Item

hardcover, 6½" x 9½", with dust jacket Queen Victoria ruled over nearly a quarter of the earth's land surface, and the brightest jewel in her crown was India. But the might of the Raj did not go unchallenged in the mountainous north-west frontier region where the principality of Chitral became a buffer between British and Russian spheres of influence. Bloodthirsty heirs, fighting after the death of the Mehtar of Chitral, engaged a small British force led by Surgeon-Major George Scott Robertson in the dilapidated fort at Chitral which was held seige for seven weeks while a relief force was organised. Ahh, the follies of a vanished age! A true story, with 28 photographs and two maps. VERY GOOD book in VERY GOOD unclipped dust jacket 248 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 38636
