1941. Egypt. WWII. An escaped German officer. A two-day chase across the brutal Sahara. A triumphant capture. A hero's return. 1991. England. Jack reigns from the armchair of his rest home, a local legend. Decorated veteran of Tobruk. Former river warden, boxer, horse whisperer, boat builder, charmer, prolific father and husband to a very unhappy wife.
