These are fascinating memoirs of a British officer who fought the legendary Pathan tribesmen of the North-West Frontier, right up to the beginning of the Second World War. He describes desperate battles against this highly skilled and ruthless enemy, where Pathan atrocities were commonplace and no prisoners were taken....

Cumming served in two Frontier units, the South Waziristan Scouts and the Corps of Guides, and the book describes in excellent detail the closing stages of Britain’s imperial presence on the sub-continent, where there was great excitement, danger and gallantry.

Born at Quetta (now in Pakistan) Walter Cumming enlisted in the Indian Army during the Great War and became a Viceroy Commissioned Officer. His units, the South Waziristan Scouts and The Corps of Guides, were highly respected and consistently deployed to the most dangerous areas.
