The novel Matterhorn, takes place in central Vietnam during the Vietnam War in 1969. Although, it has different point of views for the most part the main character is a soldier named Mellas. It follows him from being new lieutenant to a hard veteran in the marine company called Bravo. I was really impressed by Karl Marlantes writing, even though this is a war book I think it could have been enjoyed by anyone there is a lot of action there is plenty of character development and you do get attached to the characters.
