Vietnam Novel

"Karl Marlantes was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals for valor, two Purple Hearts, and ten air medals for his service in Vietnam. Matterhorn is his first novel. A graduate of Yale and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, he lives in rural Washington."

Marlantes served in Vietnam about the same time I did, so I am looking forward to reading his book.

The Pritzker Military Library in Chicago is a great instititution. They have a video on Marlantes new book.
