Item description for Younghusband: Troubled Campaign by Shubhi Sood...
This fascinating work of military history takes a look at Colonel Francis Younghusband's 1903--04 military excursion into Tibet from the perspective of an Indian general who, decades later, played a key role in administering the final terms of the treaty that was forged at the close of that campaign. The historical narrative passes over much of the convoluted political context in order to focus on the military personnel and the strategies associated with the campaign. This volume also features a series of exquisitely preserved and previously unpublished photographs from Younghusband's mission, which were the inspiration for the text itself.
