Powerful!
"Matterhorn" is not what I would normally pick up and read, but I'm sure glad I did cause this is the benchmark that I will judge all 2010 books. I suspect that this superbly written and very powerful novel will be one that stays with me for a very long time. I know it has changed my thinking because it has taken me where I will never go and given me some idea of the horror of war and the bravery of the men that fought it. Amazing book!
