"What it is Like to Go to War"

  • A conversation with Karl Marlantes

There's plenty of books about military history and strategy out there, but what about an in-depth, personalized account of just experiencing war?

This is exactly what Karl Marlantes created with, "What it is Like to Go to War." However, in many chapters, his story bends beyond the personal. He explores the psychological and cultural roots of war: Jung, myth, Indian Epics, etc..

I caught up with Marlantes during his recent trip to Louisville to discuss this book. Many readers might be familiar with his first book, the novel, "Matterhorn."
