One of the finest sci-fi books written. even though this was written at the tail end of the 50's it is still plausible and relevand, unlike so much science fiction these days. the characters are engaging reflections of the three conflict paradigms in all writing - man vs. self, man vs. environment, and man vs. other. foyle shows how man can elevate himself from the level of beast to the level of gods, but only through immense, internal effort. Strongly reminiscent of Jack London's SeaWolf - the man, the yeast, struggling to survive to the end. they are all the same.
