It had started with a mistake of command, a tragic mistake. Leading the suicide patrol across a field of mines, feeling the exploding metal tear through his flesh, and then, many hours later waking up to realize that his life as a normal man was ended…
At first Clinton Brown looked for a substitute in drink. And when that failed, his final pleasure became the destruction of those whose only mistake was to invade his humiliating, unsharable loneliness.
