Between the Oxus and the Indus  

Schomberg followed a military career and was severely wounded during World War One. He continued service until his retirement in 1928. Until 1936, when he began diplomatic work in India, he explored the regions of the North West Frontier, publishing 4 books on the subject during the 1930's. Schomberg's account of his travels in the regions of Gilgit, Punyal, Yasin and Hunza, includes chapters on the inhabitants and on the Hunza-Nagir war. An appendix deals with the history of the region.
