Karl Marlantes tells the true story of “What It is Like to Go to War”

Seattle author Karl Marlantes had a runaway hit with his novel “Matterhorn,” his Vietnam War novel that took him three decades to write and get published. He followed up with a strong nonfiction book, “What It is Like to Go to War,” Marlantes’ unblinking look at the true costs of waging war, and what should be done to prepare young soldiers for it. Marlantes is a combat veteran, and tells his story straight, eloquently and unforgettably.
Marlantes is the featured author tonight on “Well Read,” the books-and-authors program on state public affairs channel TVW. You can catch it at 7 and 10 p.m. tonight on TVW, tomorrow at 6:30 p.m. on KBTC, Tacoma’s public television station. It also airs this coming Sunday on UWTV.

Or, you can watch it here:
