5.0 out of 5 stars Death or Commerce! 28 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A ripping yarn from the early days of Empire, told from much nearer the time and informed by the values and ambitions of a different age; an age when a young man would expect to hazard his life in deadly climates, and hand to hand battles in order to establish his place in business. If you've been sent on a team or character building course, read this and cry. A long forgotten trade and long forgotten war are the dramatic backdrops, and it makes one yearn for the days when the whole world was a frontier filled with opportunities and the only stake you need place on the table is your life.

I did not know about the war between the Indians and British against the Burmese made very interesting reading and the British Raj at its best

Once again the British are fighting for someone else. A intriguing story of war escapism, Paddle steamers moving stores up to the troops, and of course sickness and death. A good gripping story.

3.0 out of 5 stars Repetitive 3 May 2013

Generally well written and researched but too repetitive to be enjoyable. I found it difficult to settle into once set aside and eventually gave up before reaching the end.

This is a story of a young super hero who finds himself in a war in Burma. A non stop action story.

Henty writes about all the minor wars conducted by the British in the 1700s - 1800s. They are written in that incomparable British diction with cultural assumption s of the time. Fascinating.

G. A. Henty does it again! I was not very familiar with British/Burmese conflict, but Henty takes the reader on a classic tale in Asia.
4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting reading 31 July 2013

A narrative from another time, the era of British colonialism. I was immediately reminded of the books of Louis Bromfield. Although Bromfield is a superior writer, this author did well to paint a clear picture.
