U.S. Army Major Bennett Marco can’t sleep at night and he doesn’t want to. Marco spends his days giving inspiring speeches about his platoon’s ambush in the Kuwaiti desert and the heroics of Sergeant Raymond Shaw, who won the Medal of Honour for saving Marco’s crew. But at night, Marco’s dreamlike memories of the desert turn sinister and terrifying. And Marco privately wonders whether the two soldiers who died in the fire fight might have met darker fates than officially recorded – and whether Shaw is really the glorious hero that everyone thinks he is.
