This review is from: A Moment of War (Paperback)
Lee strips away the romantic notions of fighting for a cause be it religion, ideology or country with this ode to a young mans lost idealism in the chaos of war. A long litany of mistakes abound as Lee is mistaken as twice as a spy and as unthought out plans result in the unnecessary loss of life of innocent people. He is drawn into webs of petty politics as people scramble around holding on or gaining power manipulating events and ordinary people for their own purposes,. The story has a resonance in any day and age as it does what a book should do, fill in the missing bits of truth of reality which are left out of official events and history books in a painfully poignant way.
