Reprint. Originally published: London: Michael Joseph, 1948.

Full of mounting suspense and masterly characterisation, Bates's popular wartime novel tells the story of three very different men who, after their aircraft crashes, are forced to trek across the Burmese wilderness to safety.

It is reissued by Methuen along with "The Jacaranda Tree" and "The Purple Plain" and to coincide with the re-publication in one volume of Bates' acclaimed autobiographies - "The Vanished World", "The Blossoming World" and "World in Ripeness".
