A superb novel about the men who fought in the North African Campaign.
Major Tim Sheldon is an infantry officer in North Africa. He has been on many patrols. Now they’ve asked him to go on one more – the longest and most dangerous of all. He could beg off, but he wont…
This is the story of Sheldon and his squad, of their nightmare war of lost nerves. In this book, you will meet men not unlike other men except they are at war, and lost, and alone. And you will witness the workings of a certain quality, a human mystery that makes men rise to things they never thought they could do.
This book is about that one attribute.
