KIRKUS REVIEW

Captain Ogilvie of Her Majesty's 114th Highlanders is assigned to escort the Czar's emissary to Katmandu--who is also the well-beloved granddaughter of the Queen-Empress Victoria--across no man's land. Conflicting orders from Whitehall, Russian treachery and the hired assassins of the Raj complicate the Britishers' xenophobic, beer-and-skittles diplomacy. Resolution: ""I could blast the buggers to Kingdom Come, sir. . . ."" A rumbstious, snorting war game.
