I found this novella to be a good read. It is about an innocent soldier as he endures his military duties in increasingly arduous missions. The main character learns a lot about himself and, ultimately, his ancestors that also served. It may be hard for those that did not serve to understand what goes through the mind of us who did. Irrespective, I hope you soul search to feel what this soldier goes through. A good and well envisioned story by someone that I will read again.
