This is the third volume in a trilogy that the author has written on British Middle -Eastern policies. In this volume, he links post war Turkey, the Caucasus and the Caspian regions, Persia, Afghanistan and India in order to show how events in one area affected British policies in another. While he notes London’s exaggerated fears about the area falling in chaos and the Bolshevik intrigue in turn leading to the collapse of the British rule in India, he takes the War Office to task a few times for doing too little too late.
