KIRKUS REVIEW

The camera-eye focussed on the Hereford regiment in India, primarily on the officers of that regiment. Solid reading --adventure, romance, chivalry (20th century version) -- and its reverse, providing variety for every taste. The story is told chiefly in dialogue, which is clever and exceedingly well done and evidence of a keen ear for the characteristics of various locales. There's nothing startlingly new in the ingredients of the story, but it is adroitly told and holds the interest through over 400 pages of fairly solid reading.
