October 1941. Twenty-one-year-old Alan Mart is posted to India and taken under the wing of the dogmatic, overbearing Acting-Captin Sam Holl. Following the Japanese advance on Singapore, the men are deployed to Malaya. What follows is a quietly shattering and searingly authentic depiction of the claustrophobia of jungle warfare and the futility of war.

"A tremendous rediscovery of a brilliant novel. Extremely well written, its effects are both sophisticated and visceral. Remarkable."--William Boyd "One of the most absorbing and painful books about jungle warfare that I have read."--V. S. Naipaul
