Synopsis : Eté 1990. Anthony Swofford, fils et petit-fils de militaires, vient tout juste de fêter son vingtième anniversaire lorsqu'il est envoyé dans le désert saoudien. La Guerre du Golfe vient d'éclater, son bataillon de Marines est parmi les premiers à se déployer dans cette aride et immense étendue de sable. Pour ces jeunes déracinés, gavés d'images et de phraséologie guerrières, ivres de rock et de bière, commence alors la longue et dérisoire attente d'un ennemi fantôme. La soif, la peur, l'épuisement, l'ennui, les frustrations lancinantes, les tensions extrêmes s'additionnent dans un climat de plus en plus délétère et explosif. Dans cet enfer naîtront pourtant de surprenantes et inaltérables amitiés entre compagnons d'armes liés par le vieux serment des Marines

When the marines or "jarheads," as they call themselves were sent in 1990 to Saudi Arabia to fight the Iraqis, Swofford was there, with a hundred-pound pack on his shoulders and a sniper's rifle in his hands. It was one misery upon another. He lived in sand for six months, his girlfriend back home betrayed him for a scrawny hotel clerk, he was punished by boredom and fear, he considered suicide, he pulled a gun on one of his fellow marines, and he was shot at by both Iraqis and Americans. At the end of the war, Swofford hiked for miles through a landscape of incinerated Iraqi soldiers and later was nearly killed in a booby-trapped Iraqi bunker
