Kipling, Rudyard: The Man Who Would Be King v.01 Dec. 30 '07
Many of you may have seen the wonderful movie made based on this Kipling short story.
The Man Who Would Be King" (1888) is a short story by Rudyard Kipling concerning two 19th century British ex-soldiers who set off from British India in search of adventure and end up as kings of Kafiristan (now part of Afghanistan). The story was inspired by the exploits of Englishman James Brooke, who in 1841 became Rajah of the region of Sarawak in Borneo, as well as by the travels of American adventurer Josiah Harlan, who claimed the title Prince of Ghor around 1840, thanks to the military force he led into Afghanistan.
