9780138541095: The world is six feet square

This is an escape book, and a prison book. Alan Caillou was in a deep penetration patrol in the Western Desert whe he was captured by the Italians. This is his story of capture and escape, brilliantly told. The chase seen through the eyes of man and beast draws to its climax at Bichus mountain lair. But as the moment of truth draws near, both hunter and hunted have developed an extraordinary and totally unexpected respect for each other. This magnificent novel conveys the harsh truth of animal existence more convincingly than any nature book.
