In THE FOUR FEATHERS, British officer Harry Faversham resigns his commission just prior to the Battle of Omdurman for personal reasons, rather than cowardice, but he is faced with censure from three of his comrades, each of whom presents him with a feather, and the loss of the support of his fiancéE, who presents him with the fourth feather. Questioning his true motives, Harry resolves to redeem himself in combat, traveling on his own to the war-ravaged Sudan.

About the Author

Alfred Edward Woodley Mason (1865-1948) was a British author and politician. Mason began publishing novels in the 1890s and achieved lasting success with THE FOUR FEATHERS, often considered his masterpiece, when first published in 1902. After serving one term as a Liberal MP from 1906-1910, Mason returned to writing but joined the Manchester Regiment after the outbreak of the First World War in 1914. He later worked in naval intelligence in Spain and Mexico and set up several counter-espionage networks in Britain.
