Thirty years in the making, this novel of the Vietnam combat experience is gritty, intense, and captivating from the first page.  The riveting narrative takes the reader up and down the chain of command, creating empathy with nearly every character.  Marlantes deftly demonstrates the ripple effect that small decisions can have, often to the detriment of those they were meant to help.
