    ***** A compelling piece of entertainment. The power of the writing pervades every page without overtaking the story. Actually, as with any good story it consists of many smaller stories. Life in the army is either boring as dirt or exciting as one can imagine. This has both with asides of pensive power. I found the stockade scene particularly moving. The smell almost jumps off the page at you. It has its funny moments, it has, actually, tender moments, unexpectedly, but they are there nonetheless. Some of the friendships develop despite the reality, and the amusements available to the men are suprisingly varied. And then there are those for whom entertainment is beating on others or screwing with their heads. Or both. The unit of MPs is driven from one area of the country and back only to repack and return. The scene in the race riots of Oxford, Mississippi are disgustingly powerful. How can one sufficiently depict the hatred of an entire race directed toward another race and anyone...
