This is a novel about the Iran-Iraq War. It tells the story of Naser, a veteran of several battles though not yet out of high school. Unable to resist pull of communal soldiering, he returns to the front to find himself in the midst of one of the War's decisive clashes. The Iraqis attack the Iranian fortified positions in tanks, while Naser's unit repels them on foot. During the battle, Naser loses several comrades but gains an understanding of the futility of conflict.
This book is one of the most popular Persian novels about the Iran-Iraq War. The work came at a time when some Iranians were reevaluating the meaning of a conflict that dragged on for eight years killing, poisoning and maiming millions. The novel speaks for the veterans who feel that propagandizing the War is a disservice to those who fought it.
