Prompted by a just-published book that holds ex-lieutenant Ben Tyson accountable for a hushed-up massacre committed by his platoon in a Hue hospital 18 years before, the army recalls Tyson to stand trial for murder. Tyson, confronted by an army authority anxious to save its own face, an embarrassed federal government, and a threatened marriage, and entangled, furthermore, in his own past lives and present sense of guilt, must call on all his cleverness and his own inner toughness to fight his case.
Thirty years ago he fought for his country. Now, he's fighting for his honor.
Did You Know?
When 1LT Tyson is in his Class A uniform, his Cavalry branch insignia is upside down. The crossed sabers should be pointed up, not down. Additionally, his ribbon rack is completely out of order. The Silver Star should be on the top row, left side. Then the Bronze Star, then the Purple Heart. Also incorrect are the rank and branch insignia on every actor while wearing the Battle Dress Uniform, or BDUs. See more
