There are some fictional accounts that were best sellers, and one of them is Matterhorn by Marlantes.

If you choose to read his book, set aside some time, as you will probably read it all the way through in one sitting.

There are plenty of real life experiences in Marlantes' book because he was a soldier in the Vietnam War.
