This novel is the third in a series following two characters through the wars of the Blair/Brown period of government. It’s 2009, and Lieutenant Colonel Richard Rawlins has been offered something he has always dreamed of: command of a battalion on operations in Afghanistan. But has he considered the personal cost of his ambition? And will his past decisions come back to haunt him?
“We never failed at any task. We did everything we were asked to do. But it was never quite enough.”
The sequel to In the Shadow of the Mountain and Sunrise in the Valley, this novel brilliantly captures how the British soldier fights on despite the lack of political guidance, the impossibility of the war, and the absurdity of a ‘war on terror.’
