Praise

“Imagine an American version of Lawrence of Arabia at large in nineteenth-century China, add the devil-may-care exploits of Indiana Jones and the high moral purpose of Robin hood, and you‘ll have a rough idea of what the adventurer Frederick Townsend Ward was really like. His story, recounted by Caleb Carr in The Devil Soldier with authority and high spirits, is so marvelously improbable, so rich in exotic detail, that if often reads more like a historical thriller than the serious work of history that it is.”Los Angeles Times

“If ever a book of history were made for the movies, Caleb Carr’s The Devil Soldier is it.”Chicago Tribune

“Good, thorough, scholarly but absorbing.”—Edward Rice, author of Captain Sir Richard Francis Burton
