I absolutely loved this book. Karl Marlantes is a legendary marine and a very deep soul. His ability to convey the mindset and the duality of war and in particular the Vietnam war is next level. Vietnam was a very unique armed conflict and the intricate methods of movement and combat he describes is done very well. My favourite part of this book is his explanation of the “Savage Joy” experienced while in combat. My only criticism is I would have liked to hear Karl read it on audiobook. I would recommend this book to anyone.🤙🏼
