A company of infantryman is one of the most powerful and versatile weapons at a nation's disposal. Capable of any number of tasks assigned to them, these are men for whom the mission always comes first. These are men of honor, men of loyalty, created for one purpose: destroy the enemies of their nation in armed conflict. But what happens when divisions begin to become evident in the heart and soul of these men? What happens when they begin to question their creation, question their reality, and question all they have been trained to hold dear?
For the commander of Combat Outpost Chemera, these questions become all too real when events begin to spiral out of control during operations in several isolated mountain villages in the war-torn nation they have been sent to occupy. Boredom, poor decision making, treasonous actions, and the grim reality of death lurking around every corner send the captain spiraling into his books, into his childhood memories, and into an examination of his military career.
How were we meant to live our lives? What gives us real purpose? Sometimes the experience of war is the only way to find the answer.
