In August 1943, Sergeant Craddock leads his battle-weary platoon down Via Garibaldi in Catania, Sicily. Struck by the oppressive heat and the alien new surroundings, the men soon settle into this lull in their combat experience. The next few weeks take on a dreamlike quality as newfound relationships flourish and the war itself – let alone homelife in Britain – recedes into the distance. Against this backdrop, the second book of Alexander Baron’s War Trilogy meditates upon friendship, loyalty and love. Based on Baron’s own experiences with the Eighth Army in Italy, this new edition of a 1950 classic includes an introduction from IWM which puts the novel in historical context and shines a light on this unique experience of the Second World War.
