The naked corpse of Captain Elisabeth Campbell, daughter of Lieutenant General "Fighting Joe" Campbell, is found staked out on the urban warfare range of Fort MacCallum. Army CID detectives and ex-lovers Paul Brenner and Sara Sunhill are called in to investigate, and find themselves wrapped up in a maelstrom of sexual impropriety and misguided face-saving.Written by

Before the closing credits a statement by then then-chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff stating that the day would come when there wouldn't be a position in the military that women won't occupy. As of 2019 quite a few women have met this challenge, a few of which include the following (in current or former posts):
Brig. Gen. Laura Yeager, commander of the 40th Infantry Division
Major General Robin L. Fontes, deputy commanding general of Combined Security Transition Command-Afghanistan
Lieutenant General Laura J. Richardson, deputy commanding general of U.S. Army Forces Command
Brigadier General Diana Holland, commandant of cadets at the U.S. Military Academy
Lieutenant General Gwen Bingham - quartermaster general
The highest rank attained by a woman was General Ann E. Dunwoody (retired), commander of the U.S. Northern Command, who received her fourth star in 2008. See more »
In the segment of the training video shown near the end, it is stated that the human eye can, "perceive 16 shades of gray." This is utter nonsense. We can perceive thousands. If the statement were true, a white-to-black gradient would look to us like it has sixteen stripes of gray instead of a smooth transition. Early second-generation gray-scale monitors would be able to display sixteen shades of gray, but this was the limitation of early graphics cards and had nothing to do with human perception.

This movie was extremely disappointing to me after having read the book by Nelson Demille (who happens to be my favorite author). I was unable to put the book down...I totally struggled through watching this movie, however. The movie did not do the novel justice and left out or changed many key parts. I usually don't expect any movie to be as good as the book, but this movie is by far the worst adaptation to a novel I have seen and I hope people don't judge one of the finest authors of our time by this disappointing movie.
