Trial By Battle (IWM Wartime Classic)

A classic novel that is part of our new IWM Wartime Classic fiction series. Due to be published 26 Sep 2019.

October 1941. Twenty-one-year-old Alan Mart is posted to India and taken under the wing of the dogmatic, overbearing Acting-Captin Sam Holl. Following the Japanese advance on Singapore, the men are deployed to Malaya. What follows is a quietly shattering and searingly authentic depiction of the claustrophobia of jungle warfare and the futility of war.

David Piper was perhaps best known as an art historian and director of the NPG, Fitzwilliam and Ashmolean museums. He served with the Indian Army during the Second World War, eventually becoming a Japanese prisoner of war for three years before his release in 1945. He was knighted in 1983.
