Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0195838629, Paperback)

Published in 1961, BAYONETS TO LHASA is the account of the 1904 British invasion of Tibet--one of the strangest events in British imperial history.

Conceived as a move in the Great Game which Russia and England had played for years in central Asia, the British incursion into Tibet was a shot in the dark. It was led by Colonel Francis Younghusband, soldier explorer and mystic.

But Younghusband was caught in political cross-fire and in the end not only failed to accomplish his mission as he conceived it, but was publicly censured.
