Shunned by their colleagues, Company Q is ordered to the western frontier and, in an exciting conclusion, given a chance to reclaim their self-respect by capturing a strategic hill from a group Indian warriors. An action-packed tale of adventure and redemption from one of the masters of the classic western novel.
