Summary Three commandos. Cut off. Surrounded. Desperate. Adapted for the screen by Peter Collinson in 1968, winner of the Golden Shell at the San Sebasti√°n International Film Festival. They were three soldiers, on watch in the French countryside, their base a disused barn. Three ordinary men seconded into the horrors of World War II, each with his own ideals, his own feelings, his own fears. Their task was a nightmare of waiting. German forces were stationed over the brow of a hill, and every moment of every day passed in nerve-shattering anticipation of their first clash. When the clash finally came, it was not merely a battle of force and brutality but a complex and murderous struggle between the cunning and ruthlessness of both sides... The Long Day's Dying is a novel that portrays the horror, the waste, the tension and the terror of war with a passionate realism. The book is a classic; once taken up, it cannot be put down; once read, it will never be forgotten.
