Quandary Resolution 1996
wherefore, vapid, crapulous, gest
Hadfield wrote a book, The Gest of Earley, about Joan Earley's exploits during the war (ignoring for the most part the long, dull periods of crapulous vapidity where she and her unit were too exhausted and hungover to do anything but sit staring vacantly into the middle distance), focusing particularly on the taking of Hill 23, not only the astounding and bloody details of the assault itself, but also the whys and wherefores - the reasons for the initial attempt and the unexpected consequences of their success.
