Overview

Quiet Year at War by John Wager

In war, when must one say 'No'? This question is certainly as gripping now as it was in 1970 when a young infantry sergeant in the U.S. Army was court-martialed for refusing to obey a direct order to participate in the invasion of Cambodia. This book offers a unique, timely mix of narrative excitement and considered reflection on the nature of war. It deals with the daily issues that are constants in combat, and it engages the reader with the larger issues of war that often get overlooked in the exhaustion and confusion of the moment.
