Karl Marlantes: A Conversation about What it's Like to Go to War

Now that it is the weekend with more time to burn, I thought I would share this fascinating presentation which I attended recently.  Karl Marlantes is the author of Matterhorn and What its like to go to War, both excellent books.  In this 50 minute presentation he discuss his personal experiences as a Marine in Vietnam, his battle with PSTD and his thoughts on modern society and how it prepares people to defend it.  Its well worth an hour of your time.

  1. I'm going to watch this later. 'Matterhorn' was superb, and I've got WIILTGTW sitting on my (massive) to-be-read shelf.
