Summary
In 2003, Sergeant Brian Turner lead a convoy of 3500 soldiers into the Iraqi desert. In 2013, he lies awake beside his sleeping wife, hallucinating: he is a drone aircraft. He hovers over a landscape in which the terrains of every conflict, of Bosnia and Vietnam, Iraq and Northern Ireland, the killing fields of Cambodia and the death camps of Europe, are pressed together, and the violence is on-going. The hallucination recurs, and every night Sergeant Turner is forced to observe anew all that man has done to man. This is a war memoir from the man whose poetry gave birth to the Oscar-winning 'The Hurt Locker'
