We have become accustomed to a fast literary turnaround in our wars recently. The troops are not back in their barracks, the guns not cold, before the first bestsellers hit the shelves. Later will come the memoirs. And as for the old wars, some catch the public imagination and some do not. The first world war and, before it, the Napoleonic wars have managed to lodge themselves deep in our consciousness, while dozens of others have failed. Perhaps that is why I felt a little surprised to see the subject of Laura Hillenbrand's new book, an epic of individual heroism and fortitude in the second world war. Weren't all those tales told in the 1950s and 60s, I wondered. Apparently not, but one must wait until the final quarter of this book to realise why the true breadth and significance of the story had to wait so long to be revealed.
