This adventure of war begins in the jungles of Vietnam and develops into late 1968 and early 1969. The author leads us to a military base known as Matterhorn, which is located in the mountains of the distance province Quang. There, a young lieutenant is determined to become a commander of his company, attempting to promote his political future. This leads him to sustain a rivalry with a few of his companions and convert the war into one about personal ambitions. Without falling into simplistic and demagogic plans, Marlantes produces a shockingly impactful novel that not only touches on the horror of way, but also the pursuit of power, courage, cowardice, and compassion.

Karl Marlantes is a graduate of Yale University. He served in the U.S. Navy and fought in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two medals from the Navy for courage, and a Purple Heart. Matterhorn is his first literary work.
