Based on Brendan Koerner's manhunt tale "Now the Hell Will Start." The nonfiction thriller, subtitled "One Soldier's Flight From the Greatest Manhunt of World War II," recounts the story of an African-American soldier who murdered his lieutenant and then fled into the Burmese jungle. The book uses the soldier's story to explore how the U.S. military considered African-Americans unfit for combat and shipped thousands to India in 1944 to build the Ledo Road, a 500-mile project that extended through mountains into China.
