The Panic Button

Ace Books #D-438, 1960

What Was The Major’s Breaking Point?

From the back:

From the moment Maier Philip Gray was transferred to the special linguistics company in Korea, he found himself in an increasingly untenable spot. The company was a collection of oddballs. Its commander was a psychotic screwball—a martinet with a nasty habit of spying on his men, their girl friends, and the bawdy house next door. The whole setup was ripe for a real explosion. THE PANIC BUTTON is a masterpiece of tension, done with sardonic realism and emotional suspense.
