The Cigarette Wall is not about quitting smoking or the consequences of smoking. This is a fun, humorous book.

Set in South Korea in the winter during the conflict between North and South Korea. An Army Engineer Detachment is charged with building an air strip. No big deal, right? They're engineers.

But things are not what they seem. The unit's First Sergeant is in a funk, facing mandatory retirement and dreading becoming a civilian. He loves the Army and would rather sleep with a bottle than a woman. The younger engineers, however, surreptitiously frequent the brothels just outside the perimeter fence of the Engineer compound. This is covertly condoned by the unit's commanding officer, but he must maintain deniability because of higher headquarters "no fraternization" orders. Meanwhile a gung ho Lieutenant, in charge of a Military Police unit attached to the Engineers, wants to close them .

The local villagers are up in arms about the Engineers digging up their ancestors graves in the mountain they are leveling for earth to fill in the surrounding rice paddies. The motor pool Sergeant has rank solely by longevity and knows less about maintaining earth moving machines than he does about making moonshine whiskey - which he used to do back home before his National Guard unit was called up for active duty.

The circumstances make for a barrel of laughs such as you haven't seen since Catch 22.
