5.0 out of 5 stars War for intelligent people
What a pity, when unprepared people try to judge a superb work of literature. Marlantes' What It's Like to Go to War is a profound, disturbing and highly intelligent work on the subject that not many of us know anything about. It is a superbly written, brutally honest account of what it means to be a soldier. Necessary read for everybody: soldiers, military families,...

Karl Marlantes book the Matterhorn was better in my opinion as it was more of what I was looking for with a detailed narration of what it was like to be in the Vietnam War. This book was good but I thought he borrowed some from his earlier book but it still had new firsthand play by play about his time in Vietnam as a soldier.

Marlantes' What It's Like to Go to War is a profound, disturbing and highly intelligent work on the subject that not many of us know anything about. It is a superbly written, brutally honest account of what it means to be a soldier. Necessary read for everybody: soldiers, military families, civilians but politicians in particular. The marvel of a book.

Ce commentaire est de: What It Is Like to Go to War (Hardcover)
Karl Marlantes book the Matterhorn was better in my opinion as it was more of what I was looking for with a detailed narration of what it was like to be in the Vietnam War. This book was good but I thought he borrowed some from his earlier book but it still had new firsthand play by play about his time in Vietnam as a soldier. I personally am obsessed with this American war and all it entailed as I grew up watching it on the TV news broadcast with Walter Cronkite nightly in Canada. Fascinating time with the music, the drugs, the hippies, the draft and the average soldier's age of about 17 or 18 and what they had to face with their innocence on the line. Tragic, the lives lost.
