Gunnery Sergeant Terence D’Alesandro, 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, U.S. Marine Corps on What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes

What It Is Like to Go to War

To say that this book is brilliant is an understatement — Marlantes is the absolute master of taking the psyche of the combat veteran and translating it into words that the civilian or non-veteran can understand. I have read many, many books on war and this is the first time that I've ever read exactly what the combat veteran thinks and feels — nothing I have ever read before has hit home in my heart like this book.
