Description
Victorian England produced a breed of international adventurers, some of the most daring of whom set out to help stem Russian military advances—the "Great Game" of imperial ambition in Central Asia. Following up Shooting Leave, which chronicled how young officers volunteered for this work under government direction, John Ure here looks to maverick and wayward Englishmen, Scotsmen, and Irishmen. These men—often journalists, politicians, merchants, clergymen, explorers, and opportunists—defied not only the Russians but also their own government in challenging Tsarist ambitions.
