First Platoon is a story that illuminates the transformation of society's relationship with war. Part war story, part legal drama, foreboding at every turn, it is about identity in the age of identification. About human biology in the age of biometrics. About the power of point-of-view in a burgeoning surveillance state. Ultimately, it is an investigative expose that reveals a post-9/11 Pentagon whose identification machines have grown more capable than the humans who must make sense of them.
