Under the Red Dragon is a historical fiction based upon the journeys of several veterans and set against the backdrop of the Crimean War of 1853-1856. It was published in 1872 by James Grant (1822-87), a Scottish novelist and historian. This well-written novel contains wonderfully depicted characters, each different from the other. The solid and absorbing storyline evokes every emotion of the reader. With his elevated writing style, Grant made sure that no one kept this book down without completing it. It is a must-read for anyone interested in and curious about the subject of Crimean War. Excerpt from Under the Red Dragon ""And she is to be there—nay, is there already; so one more chance is given me to meet her. But for what?—to part again silently, and more helplessly bewitched than ever, perhaps. Ah, never will she learn to love me as I love her!" thought I, as I turned over my old friend's letter, not venturing, however, to give utterance to this aloud, as the quizzical eyes of Phil Caradoc were upon me."
