Summary
Winner: 2016 Foreword Reviews INDIES, Silver, War & Military Captain Jim McFarlane, a Canadian infantry officer, is coming apart at the seams. It's September 1944, in Italy, and the allied armies are closing in on the retreating Axis powers. Exhausted and lost, Jim tries to command his combat company under fire, while waiting desperately for letters from his wife Marianne. Joining the army not out of some admirable patriotic sentiments but rather because of his own failings and restlessness, he finds himself fighting in a war that is far from glorious. In this story of love and war, Murphy brilliantly captures our ambiguous relationship to war
