    From the author of the New York Times bestseller Matterhorn. Here, Karl Marlantes takes a deeply personal and candid look at what it is like to experience the ordeal of combat, critically examining how we might better prepare our soldiers for war. War is as old as humankind, but in the past, warriors, were prepared for battle by ritual, religion, and literature – which also helped bring them home. In a compelling narrative, the author weaves riveting accounts of his combat experiences with thoughtful analysis, self-examination and his readings – from Homer to the Mahabharata to Jung. He tells frankly about how he is haunted by the face of the young North Vietnamese soldier he killed at close quarters and how he finally found a way to make peace with his past. 257p.
