Suffering the aftermath of the war and foreseeing the dawning of new ones, the Oxford Roof Climbers, the Benevolent Order of, lay siege to a sleepy university town. A stand against stands, a dare to end all daring, a doing that protests doings; the two haunted men—armed with a talent for practical jokes—grasp at love and dare to imagine a new world. The Oxford Roof Climber's Rebellion, despite its harmless beginnings, brings the Arab Revolt dangerously close to the heart of the Empire.
