What It Is Like to Go to War - Karl Marlantes

In What It Is Like to Go to War (Atlantic Monthly Press, $25) Karl Marlantes, author of the acclaimed novel Matterhorn, provides fresh and important insights into experiencing the ordeal of combat. Drawing on his own past leading a platoon of Marines in Vietnam, he conveys with often unsettling honesty what a combat veteran thinks and feels. His riveting account traces how, after being taught to kill, he learned to deal with the aftermath. He also examines the larger sociological and moral issues of war and what can be done to better prepare soldiers for the psychological and emotional toll it takes. With war such a part of contemporary American life, this book has particular significance for our times.
