This was my first Tom Young novel and I enjoyed reading it. The story was well told and moved at a satisfying pace. It was not all guts and glory that i was expecting by the title, but told the ugliness of war and the brutality of bigotry. Not only was the history interesting but he was able to infuse the story with the view from the aviator and the ones on the ground. All of them are warriors depending upon your viewpoint.

2 stars because it failed to grab me. It discusses fans of Clancy liking the book, bt unlike Clancy, I never got engaged. Definitely by the numbers and entertaining as such, but not at all special.

Every time I get a Tom...

Every time I get a Tom Young book, I curl up and read it slowly. I'm sure you know that sometimes reviewers read about half of a book because you can easily write a review from that and not give anything away because you don't know the ending. I can't do that with Tom Young, the books are just too good. The Warriors takes place in the Balkan States: Bosnia, Serbia, etc. Some idiot is trying to restart a war that ended over a decade ago and he's doing a fine job. Especially since he's blaming it all on the Muslims. It begins with Lt. Colonel Michael Parsons being assigned a new duty: safety officer at a base in Kyrgyzstan. Piece of cake. Until a C-27 full of opium crashes there. Questions need answers, Parsons doesn't speak the language so he calls in his linguist and close friend Sgt. Major Sylvia Gold. Together with the base Commander and local officers, they help determine who's the culprit and how to stop him, hopefully before anything else happens. You learn so much from Tom Young's books. This time, we learn about the Rivet Joint: a plane which sprouts antennas to listen to phone traffic. (Shades of Edward Snowden!) This a phenomenal plane and the people who do the listening have a very important job. Very interesting. I say this each time, but I do think this is my favorite of the books so far. It came out in July and I'm sure is a huge hit.

The Warriors by Tom Yo...

The Warriors by Tom Young is a very good novel about terrorism in the Balkans. The story follows Col. Parson and SGM Gold in a story about a former Serbian soldier who wants to restart the Balkan wars on independence for Croatia, Bosnia, and Kosovo to rid Serbia of the muslim population. He participated in the original wars in the 1990's to prevent these regions from breaking apart Yugoslavia (controlled by the Serbians). The story starts with a plane crash in Kyrgystan at the Manas air base used by the US military to support the war in Afghanistan. The plane is carrying drugs out of Afghanistan in military supplies to be reconditioned by the Afghanistan Air Force. The drugs are being picked up on behalf of the arms dealer to fund his new Balkan war to cleanse the Turks from Serbia. The trail leads back to Belgrade and Sarajevo. Col. Parson and SGM Gold are characters from the previous novel, "The Renegades". The characters are well developed and interesting. The story is well told and easy to follow even with the few twists and turns in the novel. A very good quick read.

I thoroughly enjoyed this suspenseful novel set in the Balkans. It reminds us of one of the "other holocausts" that occurred in modern time - the war between Bosnian and Turks for control of part of eastern Europe. The characters are well developed and give glimpses into the technology of contemporary wartime, and the fanatical nature of some who cannot forgive or forget. I hope another book is in the works!

The title The Warrior...

The title "The Warriors" I think could have been scrapped for a better one. After reading the book, it just didn't seem to fit. Though that is probably the biggest problem I had with it. It was a pretty good story and painted a very interesting picture with a bit of history about the Balkan war. It also shows people need to be vigilant for those consumed with hate to try and bend the world to their will. Overall, I enjoyed this book. I think it was well written and the story fits together very well. I didn't notice any glaringly bad holes like you see in the plots of a Dan Brown or Steve Berry books. I'm not sure what was missing to get is a higher star rating but the author has a solid foundation to build on and I expect them to keep getting better.
