Unveiling of LhasaeBook - 2016
In this candid look into Asian colonial supremacy, this account describes what began in December of 1903, when a border dispute escalated amid rumors of a proposed secret alliance between Russia and the religious monarchy at Lhasa. British Colonel Francis Younghusband marched his Indian troops north with a battalion of Asian laborers and special correspondent Edmund Candler from The Daily Mail in tow. This record not only describes the thrilling journey experienced by a group of men deep into the heart of Tibet, but also provides an interesting history of a conflict known as "The Great Game." --Provided by publisher.
