12 great books for Father's Day

3. Matterhorn, by Karl Marlantes

of

It's not exactly a gentle read, but Matterhorn is the kind of unforgettable novel that people put on their "best book ever" lists. Monitor reviewer David Grant calls this story – set in 1969, following a company of Marines as they wind their way through the Vietnamese jungle – "a superb piece of military fiction that deserves a place on the shelf of any reader with even a passing interest in the lore of Vietnam."
