adapted for radio by Michael Hastings
James Jones’ novel tackles strong friendships and the naked truth of lives of enlisted men in Schofield Barracks, Honolulu, at the time of Pearl Harbour.
Michael Hastings’ new adaptation captures some of the darker, racist and homoerotic themes in the book that the classic film skirted round.
Broadcast in 2002.
