From the back cover:
"On a training exercise in the Mojave Desert a young marine stood his post as a road guide, alone. When the exercise was over, he was left behind. His absence went unnoticed. Unequipped for the heat, the young marine began a long walk out of the desert - a walk that would rip his body and his mind, take him into the jaws of death, and send him into a dreamworld populated by other marines and other wars and against impossible odds.
This extraordinary work, based on a true story (1988 - 29 Palms Base, CA), is a tale of marines in peril from WWI France to Somalia. Unrelentingly supspenseful, it is a classic addition to the literature of war - and a lasting portrait of the will to endure.
