The story is supposed to be about "deserter's" through history. The book is read in a style more suited for a comedy. The book also appears to be part of a cover up. What cover up? There is not one word about the only American soldier executed for desertion Eddie Slovik, I am familiar with Mr. Slovic;s story and hoped for insights. But since the execution was done in secret it appears the story remains in the dark.
If believable hearing of a few well known men who were deserters.
