What It Is Like to Go to War by Karl Marlantes touched me profoundly. Some of his writing is about hypothesis that are fascinating to interpret and contemplate they are also highly personal. While I found the supposition fascinating, the personal side really left a mark. I found myself crying and it has been a long time since that has happened while I was reading a book. This book is significant reading for everyone who has served or is serving, and or anyone considering enlisting. Even if you oppose a war it’s a must read.
