"Lieutenant Colonel Michael Parson has seen plenty of action lately, so he's happy with his new assignment as safety officer at a Kyrgyzstan air base. It's a pretty laidback way to spend the next year. Or so he thought. On his second day, a C-27 crashes on the runway with a load of electronic gear--and opium. Recruiting his battle companion Sergeant Major Sophia Gold as interpreter, he investigates not only the crash but the source of the cargo, and the answers they find will lead them into a conflict as lethal as any they have known."--Provided by publisher.

"I don't know the things you know," he added. "I don't know about philosophy and history, and religion; I just fly airplanes. But it seems the more I learn about what we're capable of, the worse it gets."

"Something to think about, indeed" she thought. "You could dwell on darkness or focus on light."

if you wanted safety, you would not have chosen the path of the warrior.

This was an exciting book that revisited a piece of history with which I was largely unfamiliar. I highly recommend it.

The title, "The Warriors" and the jacket showing fire, helicopters and soldiers firing weapons would lead one to believe this is a military action novel --- wrong! There was no action thru the first 1/2 of the book, at which point I put it down.
