Anon, the way you present your tastes makes you sound insufferable. They said, I get what you're throwing down, you want adventure without self reflection, or at least without a certain type of modern emotional reflection.

I got you. Exploration, spies, and European conquest in Central Asia from about 1800-1914. The competition between Russia and the UK for influence.

Lots of first person accounts of all sorts of crazy shit. Men crossing great desserts alone, pretending to be Muslim sages, only to help start revolts when they reach some ancient, barely known kingdom far out across the desert or steppe.

Really top tier adventure, but also framed in the Great Power politics of the era.

Also, if you like this, check out The Ghosts of Freedom on the Caucuses.
