The Unknown Soldier - Fighting For Tibet

 

 

Spring 1971. As the snows melt on the Tibetan Plateau, the last desperate chapters of a secret and forgotten war unfold.

 

After twenty years of fighting, a few Khampa rebels, with ever dwindling CIA support, are now the only resistance to the Chinese, occupiers of Tibet for twenty years.

 

Eager for adventure, an ex-British soldier known only as Smith is drawn into this alien and fast disappearing world. In constant danger, he and a small band of rebels range across the harsh Tibetan landscape, harrying the Chinese wherever they can.

 

But as a web of intrigue stretching from London to New Delhi, Kathmandu and Lhasa begins to engulf him, Smith comes to realise that the Chinese are not his only enemy. If he is to survive, he must escape from the Land of the Snows. And a young nun is determined to make the journey with him so that her culture will survive in the West.

 

About the Author

 

Alan Robertshaw read Law at Leeds University and taught Law in a College in the South of England for four years before taking a Commission in the British Army. Having attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst he served in various parts of the world for sixteen years, retiring with the rank of Major.

 

On leaving the Army he and a friend set up a travel company organising walking and cycling holidays in Britain and Europe, of which he is still a director. Alan has travelled widely and when not writing enjoys mountain biking, walking and skiing. He is married with two grown-up sons and lives in York.

 

Reviews:

 

The Unknown Soldier has everything you could want from a well-written adventure novel – suspense, danger and action straight off the pages of a ‘boy’s-own’ story, but with so much more to commend it: three dimensional characters you actually care about, complex relationships, beautifully descriptive prose and a setting that tells its own story on so many levels.

 

All this is coupled with a level of detail and accuracy that only comes with knowing your subject backwards. All of this makes for a truly enjoyable, exciting and inspiring read!
