Control, by William Goldman.  It's rare that I read two books in a row by the same author, but I loved Soldier in the Rain and wanted to check out Control.  This 1982 novel may not be quite as good as SitR, but it comes together nicely and raises an intriguing idea - leveraging reincarnation to change history.  Worth a read.

Soldier in the Rain, by William Goldman.  I have read and enjoyed a number of Goldman's books, and this 1960 novel is a good one.  Set on an army base at the end of the Korean War, very little actually happens, but the characters are fascinating, and there is a great deal of humor.  I just learned there's a film version starring Steve  McQueen and Jackie Gleason - cool!  Recommended for sure.
