Synopsis: A former captain and lawyer in the U.S. Army recounts his four years prosecuting homosexual soldiers while hiding his own sexual identity, his abandonment of his army career, and his role in drafting a new military policy on homosexuals. 35,000 first printing.

From Publishers Weekly: This is an interesting account of a double life. As an army lawyer, Capt. James Kennedy prosecuted homosexual soldiers while closeting his own homosexuality. Finally he ended the pretense, resigned his commission and assisted the Clinton administration in revising its policy toward gays in uniform. The author's personal odyssey is a moving story of self-awareness and self-affirmation. General readers will find even more interesting Kennedy's firsthand account of the armed forces' complex gay subculture, which, he writes, includes those of the highest ranks. His assertion that one post-WWII commandant of the Marine Corps, unnamed here, was gay or bisexual will cause fierce speculation. Within the community of gays in uniform, networking and mutual protection are significant distinguishing responses to traditional official policies. Such clandestine behavior benefits neither individuals nor institutions, opines the author.
