Long Road to Baghdad

Mesopotamia, 1914: in the Middle East tension is escalating between the British and the Arabs. Misfit Lieutenant Harry Downe is sent to negotiate a treaty with a renegade Bedouin Sheikh, Ibn Shalan, whose tribe is attacking enemy patrols in Iraq and cutting their oil pipelines.Greedy for arms, Shalan accepts British weapons but, in return, Harry must take his daughter Furja to be his bride.The secret marriage leads to a deep love, to the anger of Shalan and the disgust of Harrys fellow officers.But war is looming, and the horrors of the battlefield threaten to destroy Harrys newfound happiness, and change his life and that of his closest friends for ever.Long Road to Baghdad is a vivid, moving, historically accurate account of a conflict between East and Western Empires, based on the wartime exploits of war hero Lieutenant Colonel Gerard Leachman.
