Foote himself sums up what this book is about in the chapter "Squad":

He said books about war were written to be read by God Amighty, because no one but God ever saw it that way. A book about war, to be read by men, ought to tell what each of the twelve of us saw in our own little corner. Then it would be the way it was -- not to God, but to us.
