The Story of a Woman on the Morning of a War

Shrapnel: Aristeia Rising is a rich and complex work teasing out the personal price paid by soldiers set on the stage of grand ideological battles for liberty and against the backdrop of deep drama of military tactics. There couldn't be a better choice than Hilary Swank for the just-announced upcoming movie.
