As a microcosm of larger antagonisms and issues, this is a successful comic look at a U.S. military maneuver in Iceland and the reactions the foreign presence engenders in the local population. After the U.S. soldiers bivouac on a sandy beach on Iceland's coast, the citizens in the area start speculating about what they are doing there -- does it involve nuclear weapons? Do they just want to have a good time and some R & R or are they looking for a legendary hidden treasure? Along with these speculations come the anti-NATO protesters (two), whose offensive tactics are limited to exploding firecrackers near the encampment -- an approach that leads to some misunderstanding.
