The Long March, Paperback Book

The Long March Paperback

Part of the Vintage classics series


In the blaze of a Carolina summer, among the poison ivy and loblolly pines, eight Marines are killed almost casually by misfired mortar shells.

Deciding that his battalion has been 'doping off', Colonel Templeton calls for a 36-mile forced march to inculcate discipline.

The Long March is a searing account of this ferocious ordeal - and of the two officers who resist.
