"When the Italians ended the war in 1942 small radio teams and their trucks were ordered into the Northern Frontier District to hold up the Italian invasion – by bluff. This is the desperate story of one of them; navigation by compass, which is upset by magnetic rock; of accident and attack from the air; of engagement with the enemy; of tensions of men driven on by heat and first and the pursuing enemy to amazing feats and terrible sacrifices, for the sake of an abstraction – "the Plan" with which they had been entrusted." -- from the front fold over panel blurb.
