'Moves so intensely and inexorably that it almost seems like the war it is describing' The New York Times Book Review

'Is it really worth it to die, to be dead, just to prove to everybody that you're not a coward?'

On Guadalcanal in the south Pacific, the soldiers of C Company are about to enter the war. The men know they face their baptism of fire. But none know if they will be one of 'the lucky ones' to make it safely off the island. From Captain Stein, who feels like a father to his troops, and 'Mad' Sergeant Welsh, condemning all nations while swigging gin from his canteen, to Private Bell, who just wants to get home to his wife, they will discover the line that divides sanity from madness, and life from death.

A scathing critique of heroism, The Thin Red Line is among the greatest masterpieces of war writing.

'The men are real, the words are real, death is real, imminent and immediate' Los Angeles Times
