Corporate executive Ben Tyson thought he had put the horror of the
Vietnam war behind him, but 16 years later his world begins to fall
apart. A book is written that shocks the nation with its
allegations of a civilian massacre by soldiers under the command of
Lt. Ben Tyson, and the Army realizes it cannot afford to ignore the
charges. Tyson is called back to active duty to face a court
martial. Is Tyson guilty of murder or is he a convenient scapegoat?
DeMille sets the stage for a stunning novel about moral culpability
in war. Ben Tyson is forced to assess his duty to the men he fought
with, his family, his country, and himself. When will the war
finally be over for the men who fought it, as well as for those who
agonized at home?
