This is a true account of an incredible journey across the world, driving a Land Rover. The year is 1957, and the intrepid Eric Edis has an expedition planned on scraps of paper. Not wanting to follow in the footsteps of others, Eric decides to follow his dream and do something that had never been done before; he is going to drive from London to Australia…and back again. After bringing together a team, he sets off on his massive adventure. But there is one thing he can’t plan for: Entry to the famous Burma/Ledo Road. Burma was in the grip of conflict, and would not grant land-travel visas to anyone, it was too dangerous. Eric decides to cross that bridge when he comes to it, twice! How do his team get through Burma? Well, on a wing and a prayer mostly, and with an illegal manoeuvre that would make James Bond proud! And remember, these were the days before GPS, SATNAV, and any of the modern aids we take for granted today. All Eric had in Burma was a sketched map and sheer, cussed, unwavering determination.
