In the early part of Queen Victoria's reign, the British Empire was well on the way to becoming the greatest empire the world had ever seen. This is the story of how it happened and the people who made it happen, from Afghanistan and India, to Russia and the Far East. Saul David creates a vivid portrait of the seemingly endless and brutal wars that were fought in the name of trade, civilisation and the balance of power.
Saul David was born in 1966. He is the author of seven previous books, including The Indian Mutiny (shortlisted for the Westminster Medal for Military Literature) and Zulu. He was the historical consultant for the BBC Timewatch documentary Zulu: The True Story, and presented Sky One's eight-part genealogy series, Royalty R Us, in September 2006.
