This gripping narrative tells how Lenin and his revolutionary comrades tried, in the period between the two world wars, to set the East ablaze with their heady new gospel of Marxism. Their dream was to liberate the whole of Asia,
and their starting point was British India, the richest of all imperial possessions. Pieced together from secret archives, intelligence reports, and the long-forgotten memoirs of the players involved, this is an extraordinary tale of intrigue and treachery.
