The choices he has to make are not easy and he struggles with doing the right thing. He is alienated and despised, feared and respected, ridiculed and honored as his actions are perceived by those around him as heroic or cowardly. On top of that, Shadow Soldier is historically correct and scrupulously researched. Times, places, people and event...
