Goodreads asked Michael Jecks:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Michael Jecks Most recent was Fields of Glory, and for that I had the twin inspirations of modern warfare and the brutality of war, along with Quartered Safe Out Here, an autobiography of a soldier in the Burma campaign. I wanted to look at the relationships between the men in a small platoon.
