Filling their days with endless drilling, the soldiers of Fortezza Bastiani spend the long nights wondering about an enemy no one has ever seen. As the days stretch into months, the strain of waiting for attack takes its toll on Drago's comrades: sadistic major Mattis, sardonic Lieutenant Simeon, cynical medic Rovine, and humiliated Captain Hortiz, who lives with the shame of having once sounded the alarm against an attack that vanished before anyone else could see."--Container.
