William McCloskey is back and better than ever in Warriors, the potent new prequel to Highliners, Breakers, and Raiders. Long before Hank Crawford arrived in the waters of Ketchikan, his partners and compatriots were already in love with its shores.

Following the final, crushing moments of World War II, Japanese officer Kiyoshi Tsurifune, Sergeant Jones Henry, and Resistance fighter Swede Scorden struggle to regain normalcy and any contact with the shimmering, fish-filled sea. Lost honor, fallen friends, their cultural identities gone in the wake of a nuclear blast--these fishermen-turned-soldiers have a long way to go till they regain the waters in which they feel most at home.

But as each finds his way to the bays of Alaska--Jones as fisherman, Swede eager for work in the cannery, Kiyoshi an ambassador for the Japanese trade--things aren't as smooth as they had dreamed. A new union calls for a strike during the height of the salmon season, and expensive new engine boats are replacing the sails and oars fishermen like Jones Henry have relied on for years. Plus, unhealed wounds make the looming deal between Alaskan fishermen and Japanese buyers painful for many. Behind every conversation, the question looms: Will these war-torn men ever find their peace again?

Sweeping and powerful, like the pull of the ocean, Warriors is a novel that can't be put down and that can never be forgotten.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Fast-paced and tautly written, Warriors is a gritty tale of transformations as three men from vastly different cultures must reconcile their wartime pasts in a wild new world of turbulent peace and commercial upheaval. --Karl Zingheim, Historian, USS Midway Museum
Warriors is a fascinating, gritty, and realistic historical novel about Alaska commercial fishing in the exciting decade after WWII. Characters that we meet again later in Highliners here make the transition from sail to power in Bristol Bay, begin what was to become the legendary Bering Sea king crab fishery, and deal with bitter war memories as they encounter growing Japanese influence in their fisheries. A great read! --Joe Upton, author of Alaska Blues
