Storyline

Captain Kyle Cameron, a Canadian not overly impressed by discipline and diplomacy, dismisses both and loses half of his British Lancers in a battle to maintain their hold on India's Khyber Pass. Cameron incurs the wrath of his superiors---small wonder considering the KIA count---when he violates Afghan neutrality in pursuit of the guerrillas. But he has been duped. Seems that the evil Russians have been financing some guerrilla warfare in hopes of provoking a border incident and thusly justifying a move into neutral Afghanistan, the key to British-held India. Chief plotters are Captain Ahmed Shir, s "friendly" Afghan border guard and Prince Ishak Kahn, a sheik being held in protective custody by the British. Cameron, more than a little bit irked, gets himself thrown out of the regiment (on purpose for plot reasons), joins up with the plotters and wrecks them from within. He returns to full honors... and the hand of the Colonel's daughter, a little matter that was aided greatly when he... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Still dealing with Indians
2 March 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Substitute the Mexican border for the India-Afghani one and you've got the plot of several westerns I could think of. Of course we're still dealing with Indians.

Khyber Patrol is an eastern western with Richard Egan from Canada to explain his lack of British accent and he's joined their cavalry, the Indian army of the 1890s. Since the end of the Napoleonic Wars the great eastern question is to keep the Russians from infiltrating India through the Khyber Pass and kicking the British out. But we must not cross into Afghanistan and pursue the rebels into their sanctuary there.

Richard Egan is inpatient with that policy and his impatience doesn't win him too many friends. And he's got romantic problems as well as both he and Patric Knowles are courting the colonel's daughter Dawn Addams. I think you can see where this one is going.

Even in a setting before the Russian Revolution it was fashionable in the Fifties to make Russians the villains. Raymond Burr and Donald Randolph make a fine pair of Afghani villains secretly in league with the Russians to bring their brand of imperialism to their country as opposed to British.

Some things never do change.
