    What Now, Lieutenant

    Besotted by the women who inflame, entice but usually elude them, this book tracks three men from the 2nd World War into the present century. Dr. Elder is a classicist/polytheist, who, after the Battle of the Bulge, emerges physically intact and searches for a wife and a stress-free life. Freddy, Dr. Elder’s unprepossessing son, aches to live up to his mistaken image of his father. Daniel Shaver, Dr. Elder’s protege and Freddy’s rival, is a bubbling cauldron of ambition, ego, and irrepressible id.
