A very good book about the moral conflicts faced by a soldier in situations that a civilian can barely comprehend. Unfortunately, this story is marred by excessive length. Still, if they can scale it down, it could make a better movie than the General's Daughter (by the same author).

One interesting little side note: there are two slightly different versions of the ending. I don't want to give it away, I read the paperback. Later I chanced upon a copy of the hardback and noticed that it did not contain the final paragraph of the paperback version. The paragraph in question made the ending a little more upbeat than in the hardback version. But I don't know if the paragraph in question was an afterthought or something that the author wrote originally, then took out and then restored.
