Crossing the Wire

Crossing the Wire - G.I. slang for leaving base - is set in the current war in Iraq. An American 1st Lt. has an illicit romance with an Iraqi professor of English, defying military regulations, as well as the professor's aristocratic, religious family. Thrown into combat, the lieutenant does his best to survive, while trying to make sense of the complex Arab/Islamic culture of his lover.
