- 349 PAGES
Fleming (who has a penchant for hardship and 19th century colonial midadventures) here tackles the lives and conquests of General Laperrine and Father Foucauld in Algeria on behalf of the French. Fleming captures the heroism and accomplishments of the men, setting their story against the folly and wrong-headedness of France's North African conquests.
