This is the story of that extraordinary quarter-century of imperial conquest and the people who made it happen. It is, in particular, the story of the two major and nine medium-sized wars that were fought in the name of trade, civilization and the balance of power. In a fast-moving narrative that ranges from the ministries and royal residences of London to the harsh terrain of India, Russia and the Far East, Saul David shows how Britain ruthlessly exploited her position as the world's only superpower to expand her Empire."@en ;
