Beginning his career as a British Surgeon Major in Afghanistan, George Scott Robertson found himself defending Chitral Fort in 1895 against a besieging force of thousands of tribesmen. He was celebrated as a hero, but this was only one chapter in what was an extraordinary life.

Travelling in India, Canada and Kafiristan, he took part in numerous military expeditions on the Frontier, wrote a renowned ethnography, The Kafirs of the Hindu Kush, and in later life became a vociferous MP representing Central Bradford, whos radical Liberal views both pleased and shocked his constituents. Elegantly written and well researched from materials provided by the Robertson family, An Unlikely Hero: George Scott Robertson is the story of an adventurer, ethnographer, soldier, surgeon, businessman and politician, which will be of interest to any student of the period.
