55 Days at Peking

"A handful of men and women held out against the frenzied hordes of bloodthirsty fanatics!"

Based on the real events of a siege of foreign compounds in Peking from 1898 to 1900, the combined forces of European nations and the US must survive the attack on the city organized by the Boxers. Unhappy with the rise of Christianity in China led by the influx of foreign traders and missionaries, the Boxers lay siege to Peking and force defensive actions led by US military leader Major Lewis. Aided by the English ambassador the foreign dignitaries must await the arrival of rescuers from Europe as Lewis begins a relationship with a Russian Baroness.
