The entire action of The Scarlet Sword takes place in rather less than ten days at a Catholic mission in Kashmir . There, at the moment when Kashmir breaks under the ferocious tribal rush of Pathans and Afridis. About sixty people of many nationalities are trapped. They include not only nuns, two priests, and many Sikh and Hindu women and children, but a war correspondent named Crane, a young English Colonel and his wife, a nurse from Glasgow, an English girl and her mother, and a dancer from the brothels of Bombay.

In the first murderous descent of Pathans several of these are killed. The rest, fortified and led by the two priests, succoured and nursed by the nuns, remain to resist by immense courage, fortitude and humour tens days of nightmare.
