The real Greenmantle,
This review is from: On Secret Service East of Constantinople: The Plot to Bring Down the British Empire (Paperback)
Fascinating history of Germany's attempts to encourage a Holy War amongst the Muslim populations of the Middle East and Central Asia during the First World War in order to destabilise the British and foment revolution in India.
Together with the interest in some sterling Boy's Own adventuring I was left with the impression of the awful upheavals and terrible loss of life on these campaigns no less poignant for being so less well-known than that on the Western Front.
