Staff Reviews


In college I?had the opportunity to take a team-taught class on the Vietnam war; one of the professors was a well-known Quaker anti-war activist, and the other was a vet who had served two tours in-country. It was an amazing experience, and one that has led to a lifetime of reading fiction and non-fiction about the war in Vietnam. Which brings me to Matterhorn. I love this book, and I?think I?can safely say that both of my professors would feel the same. Karl Marlantes (himself a veteran) has written an amazing novel—historically accurate, beautifully written, and incredibly moving. This book will appeal to lovers of literary fiction and war-time thrillers alike. When the book ends, you won’t want to leave the soldiers of Matterhorn behind.

“Every war has produced seminal fiction, but in the case of Vietnam there have been few examples. Marlantes now increases that list with a towering, majestic novel of men in combat. Like all great literature, his work transcends a particular war because of the universality of his characters and themes. This is a novel that will endure.”

About the Author


KARL MARLANTES, a cum laude graduate of Yale University and Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, was a Marine in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation Medals for valor, two Purple Hearts, and ten Air Medals. He has lived and traveled all over the world and now writes full time. He and his wife, Anne, have five children and live on a small lake in Washington state.

Bronson Pinchot, an Audie Award winning narrator, received his education at Yale University, which filled out what he had already received at his mother s knee in the all-important areas of Shakespeare, Greek art and architecture, and the Italian Renaissance. He restores Greek Revival buildings and appears in television, film, and on stage whenever the pilasters and entablatures overwhelm him.
