Kritikerstimmen

"The flashbacks to Hue, the pre-trial investigation (involving an attractive female major), the court-martial proceedings, the emotions of the principal characters and the soul-sickness wrought by war (which is the story's effective subtext) all are depicted with marvelous vividness." (Publishers Weekly)

the best Book of DeMille

DeMiills best novel. May be a bit outdated but still very good.

18 years after the end of the Vietnam war, a war crime in the city of Wai surfaces in the american public. A platoon killed all employees and personell of a Hospital.

The officer responsible at that time is more and more drawn into it. He is urged to re-enter the military, becomes charged wirh murder until he stands trial in a military court room.

The surroundings are very realistic and given the recent past, the story seems to be possible.

This book is a clear recommendation
