    Written while Pramoedya Ananta Toer was imprisoned by the Dutch for his role in the Indonesian revolution after World War II, The Fugitive was his first major novel, and the first to be published in the United States.Set during the final days of the war, The Fugitive tells the harrowing story of a young platoon leader who has led a failed nationalist revolt against Japanese forces occupying Indonesia. Betrayed by a co-conspirator and forced to disguise himself as a beggar, he sets out to find his fiancee while eluding the military forces who will kill him if they capture him. Combining acute political and social criticism with a tautly emotional narrative, this timeless story of a soldier's return home will haunt the memories of all who read it.
