    In 1969, at the age of twenty-three, Karl Marlantes was dropped into the highland jungle of Vietnam, an inexperienced lieutenant in command of a platoon of forty marines who would live or die by his decisions. Marlantes survived, but like many of his brothers in arms, he has spent the last forty years dealing with his war experience.

    Would you consider the audio edition of What It Is Like to Go to War to be better than the print version?

    Yes,it succeeds on an emotional level that you miss in print.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of What It Is Like to Go to War?

    Very thought provoking. The part on "NUMBNESS" is so true and insightful.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The TOTALITY of thought about the oral experience will bring a curious person who has never "BEEN THERE" as close as they will ever come to the experience of being THERE.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes- made me face my experience and cried at the epiphany....


    Any additional comments?

    Everyone should read it. Especially those people thinking of joining the military.
    I think it should be required reading for high school students.
