* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler: Brenner is able to give Elizabeth the justice she deserves, but at the cost of his own career in the military. But he makes the correct decision in choosing his integrity over blind loyalty to the military.]]

However, the reasons why Brenner and Sunhill were able to identify the culprits so quickly were all a result of the time lapse. Campbell's former academy psychologist only revealed the name of one of the culprits after he was distraught by being informed of Campbell's death, and the methods used to get that guy to confess and identify the other perpetrators relied on forensic technology having sufficiently developed in the intervening years to make the threat credible. It's open to speculation how successful the investigation would have been if it were carried out immediately after the fact, and if the military would be willing to break medical ethics in regard to the severity of the crime.]]
** But then again, the point was [[spoiler:the military, General Campbell included, decided that their image of integrity was more important than actually ''having'' integrity. By covering up Elizabeth's rape, they preserved West Point's image, and General Campbell even got a promotion out of it. All it cost them was Elizabeth.]]
* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Brenner tells someone that, "you have no right to remain silent," when Article 31 of the UCMJ allows precisely that.
** In the book, it was a valid statement. Brenner told the person that he was speaking to, "You are under arrest and you are not a suspect in this crime, therefore you do not have the right to remain silent and you are required to answer my questions."

-->'''Brenner''': I like the pink soaps... I like the skin softener, and I particularly like the bath beads. Sometimes I fill the tub with skin softeners and bath beads. I light a few candles, put on some Coltrane and soak my troubles away.\\
