This is an account of an astounding adventure, the Citroen Central Asian Expedition from Beirut to Peking, April 1931 to February 1932. Forty men and fourteen half-tracks tried to establish a link between the Mediterranean and China seas following Marco Polo's steps over the Silk Road for 7,500 miles, fighting every inch of the way over the Himalayas, across the Gobi Desert, meeting a revolution in Afghanistan, dissidents in Xinjiang and China at war.
