* EvenEvilHasStandards: [[spoiler: General Campbell is a scumbag who profited off his daughter's rape as a means of career advancement, but he's aghast when Colonel Fowler admits to Brenner and Sunhill that he covered up the crime because he believed the general had killed his own daughter.]]

* * ArmiesAreEvil: Not exactly, since while this film portrays some of the worse parts of the service, it also shows most of the soldiers themselves are normal, hardworking men and women and that it's just a few bad apples who end up doing all the damage. In a flashback, after [[spoiler: Elizabeth's gangrape,]] the pair of (male) soldiers who find her are both completely horrified.

Added DiffLines:

** Lieutenant Elby never attacks Brenner in the book. He also never slept with Elizabeth. He was just someone the general tried to setup his daughter with, but after she died, he ends up being [[ReassignedToAntarctica posted to Guam]].


Added DiffLines:

** Psychological Operations or Psy-Ops as it is referred to here, does exist under Army Special Operations Command. However, their mission is primarily the generation of propaganda materials to demoralize enemy troops, or to turn the local civilian populace against an enemy. They do not figure out how to play head games with enemy combatants, as depicted in the movie. A lot of those "mind games" could be construed as dangerously close to torture.

* AdaptationNameChange: In the novel, Capt. Campbell's first name is Ann rather than Elizabeth.

to:

* AdaptationExpansion: Several plot elements in the film were not present in the original novel:
** Brenner having met Captain Campbell before her murder.
** Colonel Moore [[spoiler:being secretly gay, as well as his subsequent suicide.]]
** Brenner and Sunhill managing to solve [[spoiler:the West Point rape.]]
* AdaptationNameChange: In the novel, Capt. Campbell's first name is Ann rather than Elizabeth. Similarly, Brenner's partner is named Cynthia in the novel, not Sara.
