Publisher's Summary

Karl Marlantes left University at 22 to serve in the Vietnam War. Matterhorn was the bestselling novel based on his experiences. Now Marlantes takes us back to Vietnam, but this time there is no fictional veil. It is part exorcism of Karl's own experiences of combat, part confession, part philosophical primer for the young man about to enter combat. It is also a devastatingly frank answer to the questions ‘What is it like to face death?' and 'What is it like to kill someone?'

Target audience

This, when heard by someone outside its target audience (someone going to/ returning from war or someone close to someone going to/ returning from war), contains a great amount of fluff.

An interesting insight at times, an elongated sermon/therapy session in others. This is not a judgement for or against its value.
