Young, toughened, and tried in the hellish crucible of Burma, he labours, sometimes faltering , beneath the weight of tradition, the glorious heritage of his family, and the burden of his own self-doubt. For him, the horizon is not the lip of the trench seen by men of the Corps in the previous war, but the ramp of a landing craft sm a s h i n g d own into the sea, and the fire of the enemy on a Sicilian beach. Here, tradition is not enough, and Mike Blackwood must find within himself qualities of leadership which will inspire those Royal Marines who are once again the first t o la nd , an d a mo ng the first to die."
