The first novel from legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog, a hallucinatory tale inspired by the true story of a stranded Japanese soldier in WWII.

THE FIRST NOVEL FROM LEGENDARY FILMMAKER WERNER HERZOG

1944- Lubang Island, the Philippines. With Japanese troops about to withdraw, Lieutenant Hiroo Onoda was given orders by his superior officer- Hold the island until the Imperial army's return. You are to defend its territory by guerrilla tactics, at all costs.

So began Onoda's long campaign. Soon weeks turned into months, months into years, and years into decades - until eventually time itself seemed to melt away. All the while Onoda continued to fight his fictitious war, at once surreal and tragic, at first with other soldiers, and then, finally, alone, a character in a novel of his own making. . .
