From the cover: “In his new novel John Masters returns to an old love, the Indian Army, but chooses a new setting: the trenches of Flanders in the early months of the Great War. The Ravi Lancers are an anomaly, the private regiment of an Indian prince, serving with the British. Their new commanding officer, Warren Bateman, a seconded Indian cavalryman, is determined to mould the regiment into a first-class fighting force, although like all the best officers of the old Indian Army he is sympathetic to his men. They, though, owe their allegiance to the second-in-command, Prince Krishna Ram, the Rajah’s heir and a demi-god. It was Krishna’s anglophile enthusiasm which brought the Lancers to the Western Front. But once there bitter conflict becomes inevitable.
