‘Let us turn our faces towards Asia,’ said Lenin when revolution failed to materialize in Europe. With the narrative pace of a thriller, this compulsive history tells how the Bolshevik attempt to foment revolt in British India sparked a shadowy, undeclared war. Its rich cast of characters includes British spies, Marxist radicals, Muslim visionaries, Chinese warlords and a White Russian baron who roasted his Communist captives alive.
