Besieged in Peking

By Diana Preston

The Boxer Rebellion was one of the pivotal events in the creation of modern China. But it was also a clash of civilisations.

Diana Preston tells the compelling and colourful story of the 1900 rising which culminated in the siege of the eleven Foreign Legations in Peking, their relief by an international force sent up from Tientsin and the subsequent looting of the Forbidden City in Peking.
