The stunning wrap-around photo gives all three cover components (front, spine, back) impact and something for the eye settle on. The spine earns a spike in interest levels for the way the title lands squarely above the head of the soldier.

The interior design features a sans serif font throughout which complements the more casual and youthful tone of the writing.
