Imperial War Museum Wartime Classic Series

1943 the North African desert. Major Tim Sheldon, an exhausted and battle-weary infantry officer, is asked to carry out a futile and unexpected patrol mission. He’d been on lots of patrols. This would prove to be the most arduous and dangerous of all. Fred Majdalany’s magnificent novel of the men who fought in the North African campaign puts this so-called minor mission at center stage. Over the course of the day and during the patrol, Sheldon considers his future, and contemplates the meaning of fear.
