367 pp, 8vo (8 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0002711354 "With the mighty Sikh Khalsa, the finest army ever seen in Asia, poised to invade India and sweep Britainnia's ill-guarded empire into the sea, every able-bodied man was needed to defend the frontier - and one at least had his answer ready when the Call of Duty came: 'I'll swim in blood first!' For stalwart Harry Flashman, arch-rotter of the Victorian era and the most decorated poltroon in the Army, had not lately escaped fr om Borneo pirates, London bookies, slavery in Madagascar, and the embraces of a mad black queen, just to be plunged into even more dreadful peril - not if he could help it. Alas - there was no avoiding the terrors of secret service in the deba u c h e d and intrigue-ridden Court of the Punjab, the attentions of its beautiful nymphomaniac Maharani (not that he minded that, really), the horrors of its torture chambers, the plots of such fearsome figures as the Tartan Pathan, the Golden Hen , an d th e mysterious Man Who Would Be King, or the baleful influence of the Mountain of Light. And that was only the beginning: ahead lay the carnage of the bloodiest campaign ever fought in India, when Sikh, Briton, and Sepoy contended for an em pi re, a nd it s fate rested on a crazy old Irish gneral and the panic-stricken Flashy vainly trying to hide behind him."
