Trial By Battle Paperback / softback
by David Piper
Part of the Imperial War Museum Wartime Classics series
October 1941. Twenty-one-year-old Alan Mart is posted to India and taken under the wing of the dogmatic, overbearing Acting-Captin Sam Holl.
Following the Japanese advance on Singapore, the men are deployed to Malaya.
What follows is a quietly shattering and searingly authentic depiction of the claustrophobia of jungle warfare and the futility of war.
