  • A book for anyone interested in the history of imperialism, of Scotland and of a regiment engaged in its own war on terror.

  • A vivid, balanced portrayal of the rise and fall of British imperialism in a fascinating part of the world

    Ian Cobain, Guardian
  • The research effort to create this book is stupendous...a fascinating book on several levels.

    Malachi O'Doherty, Irish Times
  • An excellent account, with many avenues previously neglected given the attention they deserve

    Colonel (Ret'd) David Benest OBE, Royal United Service Institute (RUSI) Journal
  • This is a book with a bit of everything – narrative and analysis, pace and detail, villainous politicians and heroic fighters... Strongly recommended…

    James Spencer, British Yemeni Society Journal
