John Murray London 2004. Hard cover dust wrapper 350pp b&w plates. Former owner's name on fly else else very good. In December 1903 a British army marched over the Himalayas to counter a non-existent Russian threat and was confronted by a medieval Tibetan army ordered to stop it by non-violent means. Leading what was supposed to be a peaceful political mission was Francis Younghusband. But commanding the army escorting Younghusband's mission was General James Macdonald who was determined to do things by the book. The result was conflict at every level with a tragic outcome. Younghusband emerged as a hero shamefully treated by his government. Macdonald is remembered because his cowardly behaviour frustrated Younghusband at every turn. Drawing on diaries, letters and unpublished accounts, Allen overturns the accepted view, to present the real story of the Younghusband mission.
