In this powerful and honest memoir, Robert Tonsetic recalls his experience as an army rifle commander of the 4th/12th Infantry during the first six months of 1968, the bloodiest year of the Vietnam War. 1968 began with the Tet Offensive and was closely followed by the May Offensive. In between there were several large-scale search-and-destroy operations involving deadly fire fights with Vietcong and North Vietnamese units. Warriors is the story of an officer during these pressure-filled months, as he made life-and-death decisions to try and keep himself- and his men - alive in the jungles of Vietnam. *Eyewitness account of crucial stages of the Vietnam War *Vivid recollections of brutal fighting in the jungles of Vietnam

MEDIA REVIEWS
"He tells the story ...with crisp, clean, fast-moving prose, unromanticized and unsentimental, but not without affection for the men of Charlie Company." -Carl Schoettler, Baltimore Sun April 7, 2004.

"His straightforward, low-key account of horror, boredom, camaraderie, humor, heroism, the...turmoil...at home, and his own...discomfort at how it was being conducted, demonstrates...the experience of a typical rifle unit." -Bostonia, Spring 2004

Awarded the "Writer of Excellence Award for 2004" by the 199th Light Infantry Brigade Association
