From the shelves:

"One-Arm Sutton" by FA Sutton himself. A cracking yarn if you can find it.

Just about anything by Peter Hopkirk will have something of relevance to the era.

Another vote for Peter Fleming's "News from Tartary".

Hi Helen - I can't find the Persian Expedition book by Alan Stewart listed on Amazon.  Do you know where I can get a copy?

Gallenkamp's Book is an excellent portrait of Andrews' expeditions into Mongolia in the 20s.  In addition to the text, there are some great fotos of the expedition vehicles that cry out to be modelled!

Doc,
You might look at The Great Race.  I don't recall the female author's name, but the book describes the round the world auto race from New York to Paris in 1910.  It covers the cross China and Russia portion very nicely.  A true story.

More Shanghai specific, but with a little of the Chinese civil war thrown in:

Empire Made Me: An Englishman Adrift in Shanghai by Robert Bickers

Good read.

The Legend of W.E. Fairbairn, Gentleman and Warrior: The Shanghai Years by Peter Robins

Very good read.

More general interest for the period, quite a bit of Turkey:

Gentleman Spies by John Fisher

And for the more fictional, but with some interesting Turkish scenarios in a WWI setting:

Greenmantle by John Buchan.

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen.

I'd recommend these books:

The Spy Who Disappiared. Diary of a Secret Mission to Russian Central Asia in 1918 by Reginald Teague-Jones.
Operations in Persia 1914-1919 by F.J. Moberly
On Secret Patrol in High Asia by L.V.S. Blacker
Beyond the Frontiers (The Biography of Colonel F.M. Bailey) by Arthur Swinson

I'm a student and researcher and interested in Trans-Caspia theatre of the Russian Civil War. If the community would not mind, I could publish here translations of documents from Russian State Military Archive.
