The novel follows the crew from "From Here to Eternity" in their interaction with the hospitals where they have ended up. Though as usual, the names have been changed from the original set, a decision that Jones later found a mistake on his part, you can easily re-establish who everyone is supposed to be. There process of physical healing is well developed, and though there will be some glitches in following this story through to complete civilian life in "Some Came Running", if you are reading the "Pruitt" cycle chronologically, this is a worthy chapter. These are high quality fiction, in my estimation, and well worth the read. ( )
