I'm reading a war story, and I keep wondering...what is "the shit?" exactly? (It's Tim O'Brien's "Speaking of Courage" if it helps). I also heard it on the movie "Rushmore".

I tried Googling it, but I get references for feces, or the term, "the shit" (these pancakes are the shit). But what exactly does it mean to "be in the shit"?
