It is 1959, the war has been over for 14 years, but pro-Nazi and anti-Semitic sentiments are still strong. Before he leaves home, the Jewish G.I. is warned not to get involved with the German people and not to get married, two situations that trouble him during his tour of duty. He is stationed in Nuremberg near the site of the Nazi Party Rallies of the 1930s. From his barracks window, he can see part of the Tribune, the grandstand where Hitler sounded threats of war to multitudes of spectators, legions of German troops, and international media.

The U.S. Army renamed the grounds Soldiers Field and staged its parades there. The novel focuses on the young mans confrontations with, and reactions to, important social issues: sexual liasons with German women, racist attitudes in the military, interracial fraternization, tensions between white and black soldiers on post, segregated G.I. bars off post, and German-Jewish reconciliation.
