Synopsis of Matterhorn
THIS IS A LATER EDITION!
Intense, powerful, and compelling, Matterhorn is an epic war novel in the tradition of Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead and James Jones's The Thin Red Line.
It is the timeless story of a young Marine
lieutenant, Waino Mellas, and his comrades in Bravo Company, who are
dropped into the mountain jungle of Vietnam as boys and forced to fight
their way into manhood. Standing in their way are not merely the North
Vietnamese but also monsoon rain and mud, leeches and tigers, disease
and malnutrition. Almost as daunting, it turns out, are the obstacles
they discover between each other: racial tension, competing ambitions,
and duplicitous superior officers. But when the company finds itself
surrounded and outnumbered by a massive enemy regiment, the Marines are
thrust into the raw and all-consuming terror of combat. The experience
will change them forever.
Written by a highly decorated Marine veteran over the course of thirty years, Matterhorn is a spellbinding and unforgettable novel that brings to life an entire world--both its horrors and its thrills--and seems destined to become a classic of combat literature.
