As the head of a unit responsible for advance disarming of bombs and IEDs, Caster would sometimes be called upon to take "the long walk" to disarm a device manually when technology failed. As well as describing combat, the book also masterfully portrays the struggle many soldiers encounter for peace and sanity after returning home.
