PAPERBACK
"As I climbed on I thought, 'This is the end then. I have often wondered how it would come. Now I know. Any moment a bullet will smack into me, and a khaki bundle that was Overton will go tumbling down the hill on to the beach . . .' " Autumn 1943. Realizing that his feelings for his sweetheart are not reciprocated, Major John Overton accepts a posting behind enemy lines in Nazi-occupied Albania. Arriving to find the situation in disarray, Overton attempts to overcome geographical challenges and political intrigues to set up a new camp in the mountains overlooking the Adriatic. As he struggles to complete his mission against the chaotic backdrop of battle, Overton is left to ruminate on loyalty, comradeship, and the futility of war.
