Overview

If you didn't participate in the Vietnam War, you've probably wondered what it must have been like for those who did. In Warriors you will learn:
- What went through a soldier's mind when he learned he was going to Vietnam?
- What were his first impressions when he arrived there?
- What were the day-to-day routines in a combat zone?
- What was it like during a firefight?
- What went through a soldier's mind as his tour came to an end?
- What are his thoughts now that he can look back on the experience?
Warriors provides the answers to these questions and many more, from the perspective of men in such fields as the infantry, artillery, chaplain corps, and aviation. If you were in Vietnam during that unpleasantness, you'll commiserate with your comrades in arms. These nine first-person narratives read like suspense novels and put the reader directly in the line of fire.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Richard Huggins
There are innumerable non-fiction histories available about the events of the Vietnam war, but none that do a better job of bringing the "grunt's" experience to life. We owe it to these proud men not only to understand the events, but also to understand at a basic level what they lived through and carry with them even to this day. "Warriors" is a must read!
Amazon - John Waterman
If you are a veteran of Vietnam, know somebody who was, or have no military experience, you should enjoy this book. Take a glimpse into the lives of those who answered the call-to-arms during a time of war.

As a veteran of the US Air Force during the Vietnam era, I can highly recommend this book for all readers.
Amazon - Leonard Scruggs
As a Vietnam veteran, myself, I was amazed at how concise and well put were their memories of the frustrations of the "rules of engagement" and the discomforts and stresses of life in the field. Ed Nielsen gives these nine men credit for being exactly what they were and still are--Warriors and patriots worthy or our appreciation and salute. In so doing, he has given a much-needed salute to all Vietnam veterans. This is definately a 5-star book.
Amazon - Joe Blair
Ed Nielsen has written a book that speaks to those who fought in the Vietnam War. Being a veteran of that war I easily related to this good book. Ed drew out those interviewed for the book and caught the essence of many different men who lived that war. I highly recommend it to you. Col Joe Blair III US Army Retired
Amazon - Warren Alcorn
Ed's ability to find and draw out nine veterans who would actually would talk about their personal experience in this 'forgotten war' is an outstanding accomplishment, as you feel and share what they went through. It's an 'excellent read' that you will find difficult to put down. I highly recommend this excellent book for those who are curious to know more about the Vietnam war through the eyes of veterans who bravely fought there.

Meet the Author

For many years, Ed Nielsen reviewed classical CDs for Prime Times, a regional publication in Western North Carolina. Classical Classics is a compilation of those reviews and many more. He has played the accordion, trombone, and piano at various points in his life, but nothing in recent years. An admitted classical music snob, insisting on only the very best in his personal CD collection, he owns a copy of every recording in this book. Nielsen is also the author of "Warriors," nine personal accounts by Vietnam War veterans and "Assault on Avignon," the adventures of a WWII navigator/bombardier who got shot down over southern France and captured by the Germans. Nielsen and his wife Connie are retired and live in Hendersonville, NC.
