From the back of the book:
"Had enough of fighting for king and country? Sick of being told what to do and who to kill, and hanging your butt out on the line every day just so some career-climbing general can reap the benefits of your hard work? Do you think you can measure up in the big leagues, and carve your name into the history books for all time? Well, bud, now it’s time to put up or shut up, because not everyone is cut out for the rough and tumble life of today’s mercenary! War’s a dangerous business, and for the professional soldier, survival ain’t as simple as coming out of the firefight alive!
