I am a fan of Alfred Bester AND CBSRMT so this is a cheesy gem. I love the way it vaguely ties in with the concept of "jaunting" in is timeless classic "The Stars My Destination," a book well worth reading. I also find it hilarious that they use high dose LSD to try to get at a character's memories. Ahh the 70's . . . .

During World War V, victims of combat fatigue are able to transport themselves back in time. The President wants to know how and why.

A lame satirical parable based on an Alfred Bester tale that doubtlessly deserves much better. Marred by overly exaggerated and not very comical comic characterizations, a milked out story line, and a payoff that's only mildly poignant and doesn't really satisfy

In the year 2175, a militaristic America is entrenched in the desperate horrors of World War Five. The key to victory may lie with the patients of a trauma ward, who seem to appear and disappear without a trace.
