The Last Hill

A novel by

Malaya, January, 1942. Cut off during the Japanese advance on Singapore, the remnants of a British battalion set up a defense perimeter in the jungle. As a position, Muswell Hill looks impregnable; but how long can exhausted men repulse wave after wave of vicious enemy ground and air attacks, while hope of reinforcement slowly fades ...

As the situation worsens, an extraordinary conflict erupts between Major Kerr, professional soldier and C.O., and Captain Cornish, gentleman civilian soldier and Kerr's second in command. These two offices must contend not only with the Japanese and their own men, but with each other, as a deadly battle of will consumes them.

Tough, exciting, and suspenseful, The Last Hill is a superb successor to the author's critically acclaimed first novel, Bomb Run.

About the author: Spencer Dunmore was a schoolboy in Yorkshire, England during World War II and watched bombers limping home to the RAF airfields there. His imagination was fired by this experience to the extent that he became an expert on the war in the air, 1939-1945, and his accounts of the bombers and fighters involved are renowned for their accuracy. Dunmore left Britain for Canada in the mid-50s where he was an advertising executive for many years. Dunmore is now a full-time writer and a private pilot on weekends and resides in Ontario.
