Book DescriptionIn August 1904 Sir Francis Younghusband's invasion force reached the forbidden city of Lhasa. The British invasion of Tibet in 1903 acted as a catalyst for change in a world transformed by revolution, war and the rise of a new order. Using unofficial government sources, private papers and the diaries and memoirs of those involved, this book examines the impact of Younghusband's invasion and its aftermath inside Tibet.

British intervention in Tibet was one of the last chapters in the 'Great Game' between Britain & Russia, but it also took place at a time when Japan & the U.S. were emerging as world powers. Wendy Palace reassesses Britain's policy in Asia & also considers the impact of the intervention on Tibet itself.
