The Boxer Rebellion - The Illustrated Editionby Frederick Brown
Brown initially volunteered to be a chaplain to the British troops, but was quickly attached to the Intelligence Department
Fully illustrated throughout with contemporary photographs and illustrations, this highly readable account of the Boxer Rebellion was written by Frederick Brown, a British missionary living in Tianjin province at the time of the uprising.
Brown initially volunteered to be a chaplain to the British troops, but was quickly attached to the Intelligence Department because of his superb local knowledge and grasp of the language and culture. This is his personal account of the long and difficult journey to Peking with the Allied Forces of the Eight-Nation Alliance, where he witnessed violent battle, brutal atrocities and finally victory for the imperial powers of the West.
