 Karl Marlantes Biography

Karl Marlantes is the author of the best-selling and prize-winning Matterhorn: A novel of the Vietnam War and What It Is Like to Go to War. He served as a Marine in Vietnam, where he was awarded the Navy Cross, the Bronze Star, two Navy Commendation medals for valor, two Purple Hearts, and ten Air Medals. Later in life, he served as managing director of a multinational corporation based in Singapore and then started his own consultancy practice in the international energy business sector. He was a Rhodes Scholar.

In the late 1990s, Marlantes asked the Veterans Administration for help with symptoms caused by post-traumatic stress disorder. He entered counseling, and a decade later finished his first book, Matterhorn, the novel he’d been working on since returning from Vietnam. The book draws from his own war experiences, and he credits the process of writing it with helping him come to terms with what he saw.

Marlantes published his second book, What It Is Like to Go to War, in 2011. The book weaves his personal recollections of Vietnam with analysis of the effects of war on those who fight, and how we can better prepare soldiers for the experience of war.

Marlantes is featured in Ken Burns' and Lynn Novick's 10-part documentary series, The Vietnam War. In 2018, Marlantes was featured in Going to War, a documentary about what it means to train for, serve in and return from war.

His newest book, Deep River, is to be released in 2019.

Karl Marlantes graduated from Yale University and was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University, before serving as a Marine in Vietnam.
