Staff Reviews


I concur with Eon on this magnificent novel about a boot lieutenant's first two months in Vietnam.

— Chris

Set in the misty, mountainous jungles of Vietnam, near the Laotian border, a company of Marines faces unnerving circumstances. Each Marine struggles with individual fears and must find alliances within the company in order to survive the grueling thirteen-month tour. This book has been compared to The Thin Red Line or The Naked and the Dead and I can truly see why. The story haunts you long after you have flipped the final page.

— Eon

Summer '11 Reading Group List


“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.”
— Bill Cusumano, Nicola's Books, Ann Arbor, MI
