Organisation, warfare, dress and weapons. "The collapse of the Soviet Union and the coming to power of anti-Western regimes in Iran and Iraq have brought the territories covered in this book back to prominence after decades of relative quiet. During the nineteenth century these territories which are now part of or border on Russia, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, India and China were the main theater of the Great Game, in which British and Russian agents competed for influence over the native princes."
