Karl Marlantes: Matterhorn

Described by critics as “raw, brilliant, a living-breathing book,” award-winning author Karl Marlantes’ Matterhorn takes you into the heart of the Vietnam War. It chronicles the experiences and horrors of the men from Bravo Company as they navigate the jungle, form a brotherhood they would die for and follow a leader they would kill for. Marlantes brings a personal perspective to the subject as a decorated Vietnam veteran, having served as a Marine in the war.

Matterhorn was recently awarded a Colby Award, an honor bestowed on a debut work of fiction or nonfiction that raises awareness of military history, international affairs or intelligence operations. If you’ve ever wondered what it was really like for the men who fought in the Vietnam War, attending this reading just might be your gateway inside.
