Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

Shortlisted for the first ever Booker Prize in 1969.

Two men are on the run. They have 400 miles to go across hostile territory. Soldiers on the ground track them day and night, a helicopter circles above, life becomes a second-by-second fight for survival. Each muscle movement, drop of sweat, glance and instinct matters. Every second counts.

Through long slogs across country, risky raids for supplies, moments of sheer panic and under the intense pressure to survive, an unbreakable bond between two men is forged. This stunningly written, adrenaline-pumping novel is a little-known classic of its genre.

Critic Reviews

"Masterful and beautifully written. Riveting and compellingly authentic. Grips you like a vice from the first page and never lets you go." (Damien Lewis)

"England's prose has the tough, spare elegance of steel scaffolding...a brilliant achievement." (The Times)
