One Kind of Officer

(1893)
A Novella by

 
 
What does one do when issued an order by a superior that is contradictory to what one believes to be right? In this short fictional story from the American Civil War, the protagonist is faced with that very situation. When given an insulting and ridiculous order by his commanding general, he carries the order out. Then, when questioned by a subordinate, he passes it on to him in the same manner.

Friendly fire in a fog is just as deadly as fire from the enemy.
