Summary
Set in the Libyan Desert during World War II, British soldiers on the brink of collapse push beyond endurance to struggle up "The Hill," a manmade instrument of torture--a tower of sand seared by a white-hot sun. They are in this military prison because they once defied, rebelled and talked back to their superiors
