Reviews Ismail och skildes från honom och hans ypperliga palao med uppriktig saknad" (II, 363) [Despite his lack of cleanliness and various other faults, I liked Ismail and parted from him and his splendid rice piloff with a genuine sense of loss]. Ismail had learned to cook by helping his mother. (Did Mannerheim's little band have a chuck wagon?) On the first page of Halén's introduction, one reads: "Britterna och ryssarna hade redan fört ett sekellångt s.k big game om herreväldet i Pamir, Karakorum och Afghanistan" (III) [The British and the Russians had carried on a century-long so-called big game for hegemony in Pamir, Karakorum, and Afghanistan]. Halén means "the Great Game," the term coined by Lieutenant Arthur Conolly (1807?), who disappeared at Bokhara in the 1840s. Who has not thrilled to Kipling's Kim (1901) about the halfcaste boy, recruited as a supremely skillful British agent? "When he comes to the Great Game, he must go alone--alone, and at the peril of his head." George C. Schoolfield Yale University Magnus Nilsson.
