Overview

"Field of Agincourt" is a trip into madness. How does a soldier retain his morality in a war he feels is unjust?

The trouble is, Clifton and Pete are both equal parts of the same person. Throughout the story, Pete remains in constant conflict with Clifton as he attempts to retain both his sanity and his morality. The other soldiers in the unit learn to accept his changes in behavior knowing him to be kind one minute, brutal the next. As a soldier he is dependable. Nothing else matters.
