Shannon P. Meehan,   a lieutenant in the U.S. Army, under the blazing Iraqi sun in the summer of 2007, ordered a strike that would take the lives of innocent Iraqi civilians.

He thought that he would only kill the enemy, but in the ruins of the strike, he discovers his mistake and uncovers a tragedy.
