Through extensive research, Ron Leshem discovers and shares the trials and tribulations of soldiers fighting a useless fight. There's no whitewash, and there are no excuses offered for the complex characters who face impossible tasks in their formative years. The narrator's sanity is questionable, and yet Leshem's development makes him sympathetic most of the time, and even heroic sometimes.

I was openly skeptical when I read the first chapter - it's a bit risky to start with that much emotion out of context - but the rest of the novel is difficult to put down, and is guaranteed to leave you thinking about our world and the actions of our government...just as a classic should.
