eBook Description: When Harry Feversham resigns his commission shortly before being deployed into battle in Africa, his friends and fiancée turn on him, giving him four white feathers ... symbols of cowardice. But Harry is no coward, and he decides to prove himself. His quest to restore his honor will take him undercover in the bustling markets of Cairo to the scorching deserts of the Sudan, from unbearable torture at the hands of barbaric tribesmen to ecstasy in the arms of the woman he loves. It is an unforgettable journey and a tale of true heroism and bravery in the finest British tradition. The Four Feathers has been filmed numerous times, most notably with the 1939 adaptation directed by Zoltan Korda and starring John Clements and the current film starring Heath Ledger. It remains one of the landmark adventure stories of British soldiery, standing alongside the finest works of Rudyard Kipling and Talbot Mundy with its powerful story and epic scope.
