Officers And Gentlemen is an oddity as a war book, being less a novel of war and more one around it. Characters are thrown across continents by it, split between foreign and civil service all under orders to support the war effort; wherein both an officer’s stack of paperwork and administration duties seem to be the greatest enemy to all involved; where the confusion of war is prevalent, not in the actions of your foe but rather those of your own command; and the book feels all the more truthful for it.
