Book Image Did Not Load!Martin Roy Hill’s award-winning collection of short stories about duty and sacrifice. A Cold War soldier faces the prospect of starting WWIII in the title story “Duty.” A former Coastguardsman must face his ghosts from the past in “Something Far Away.”  In “Destroyer Turns,” a murdered sailor returns to haunt his aircraft carrier—or did he? A retired spy's last mission during Glasnost is the subject of “Brandenberg’s Diaries.” Soldiers from different generations discover the futility of war in “The Stragglers.” A Vietnam vet contemplates a younger generation’s eagerness for another war in “The Use of Innocence.”

“Hill's writing is sparse but packs so much into each tale that you leave one story satisfied yet eager to dive into the next one. They are that good.” — Reader's Favorite
