Description: It's 1989. The Berlin Wall is about to fall; but outside of Stuttgart, West Germany, at the Theodore Roosevelt Army Base, Specialist Ray Elwood of the 317th Supply Battalion is about to find his own cold war turn white hot. Elwood's a loveable rogue, a conscript who's managed to turn his military servitude into a blossoming network of black market deals--more out of boredom than ambition. Officially, Elwood has a day job, as battalion secretary to the inept--but caring--Commander Wallace Berman. On the side, he does everything from selling stolen Mop'N'Glo, to cooking heroin for the base's ruthless head of Military Police, Sgt. Saad. When a new top sergeant arrives, with the avowed intention of cleaning up the base, Elwood thinks the new blood is nothing he can't handle. But that was before he factored in the $5 million in stolen arms that just landed in his lap, Berman's jealous wife, an insane Turkish drug dealer, and the resulting lust, betrayal and murder.
