Under the banner of a Holy War, masterminded in Berlin and unleashed from Constantinople, the Germans and the Turks set out in 1914 to foment violent revolutionary uprisings against the British in India and the Russians in Central Asia. It was a new and more sinister version of the old Great Game, with world domination as its ultimate aim. The shadowy and often bloody struggle which followed was fought out between the intelligence services of King, Kaiser, Sultan and Tsar. It was to spill over into Persia, Afghanistan, the Caucasus and Central Asia, and be felt as far afield as the USA and China. This is the extraordinary story of the Turco-German jihad of World War I, recounted through the adventures and misadventures of the secret agents and others who took part in it.

'Recreates with much verve and brilliance, the clandestine attempts by Britain's imperial rivals to subvert the British Empire in India' (Guardian)

'Tells with great fluency, authority and narrative skill . . . a story which no single book has told before' (Sunday Telegraph)
