After the British are driven back by Walther Model 's Afrika Korps and Field Marshal Montgomery is killed, Staff Sergeant Walsh is transferred back to England where he meets up again with some Members of Parliament that lead the retaking of the government away from the Nazi-lovers.

    Today, however, many people think that there was no Sun Tzu: Instead, they argue, the book is a compilation of generations of Chinese theories and teachings on military strategy. After the British are driven back by Walther Model 's Afrika Korps and Field Marshal Montgomery is killed, Staff Sergeant Walsh is transferred back to England where he meets up again with some Members of Parliament that lead the retaking of the government away from the Nazi-lovers. With deftness, Sears shows how this great fight -- which ended technically in a draw -- unfolded by fits and starts, with no one on either side having control over what was taking place or what would happen next, a whirlwind of men and noise that ripped from one end of the battlefield to the other, the whole outcome fully dependent on contingency, fate and luck. He served for only a few months in France, and his military career ended in alcoholism and disgrace. It is during the fighting in France that he obtains his signature weapon, an "obsolete" anti-tank rifle that he uses as a sniper rifle.

    He and the private are exonerated when the two NKVD investigators agree that it would take more paperwork for them to get the two into the penal battalion then if they were to report that it was an accident. Furgurson, another former journalist, not only recounts the story behind what most historians regard as Confederate Gen. Sears, the author of several splendid Civil War books, conveys all the human drama of the battle, skillfully shifting from generals to soldiers in the ranks to reconstruct the battle through the eyes of the men who fought it. True, there were signs of recovery, but there had been similar signs three years earlier and then there had been another dip. Beneath the surface of Catton's chronicle runs the awful specter of the tolls of war -- how war dehumanizes, stultifies, and yet breeds comradery, trust and even love among those who wage it. Rothe is alternately amused and annoyed by the eccentricities of his crewmates; his driver is hypersexual and his radio operator, Theo Hossbach, is a willful recluse.
