Vietnam Center and Archive Guest Lecture Series Presents Karl Marlantes

Karl Marlantes is the bestselling author of Matterhorn: a Novel of the Vietnam War and What it is Like to Go to War. The latter title was named a top book of 2011 by Amazon.com. The Washington Post called it "a well-crafted and forcefully argued work that contains fresh and important insights into what it’s like to be in a war and what it does to the human psyche." A graduate of Yale University and a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford, Marlantes served as 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.

This is the second lecture in the Vietnam Center and Archive 2013 Guest Lecture Series. All lectures are free and open to the public. This series is made possible by a generous grant from the Helen Jones Foundation.
