"Casemate has a long history of publishing high quality military history non-fiction. Lately, they have expanded their range of work to include well written novels using wartime settings." - WWII History MagazineClose combat in the jungle of Vietnam between equally committed adversaries unfolds at a person, intense level from initial contact to final horrific ending.

In war, every action has a beginning and an end.

Echo Among Warriors is a story of close combat between two opposing, equally committed adversaries. The powerful narrative immerses the reader in both sides of the battle, playing and replaying the same battle sequence from alternating viewpoints—through the eyes of the Marines and through the eyes of the North Vietnamese. The bullet fired from a Marine’s M-16 at a silhouetted enemy solider crouched on the jungle path will in the next chapter tear into the flesh of that crouched NVA trooper. The story—unfolding from the initial contact to the final horrific ending—represents just one of perhaps thousands of deadly encounters that reflect the reality of battle—a mind-numbing, intensely personal experience that forever changes the participant.

"... an intense, you-are-there, fictionalized consideration of close-quarters fighting during the American war in Vietnam. The final ten chapters are as realistically and breathlessly action-packed as you will read anywhere."

- The VVA Veteran

"...the combat scenes in the jungle are well-written and carry the authenticity of a USMC veteran author..."

"Casemate has a long history of publishing high quality military history non-fiction. Lately, they have expanded their range of work to include well written novels using wartime settings."

- WWII History Magazine

"Camp’s characters, on both sides of the fight, are realistic and perfectly represent the range of human nature: from larger-than-life heroes to reluctant warriors; those dedicated to their cause and their fellow soldiers to those only out to save their own skin; inexperienced replacements with grizzled combat vets; the lucky and the unlucky; conniving hypocrites and flat-out cowards."

- Michael Archer, Author, Marine, Khe Sanh veteran

"The action is tight and well paced, but also filled with specific technical detail.... the straight forward style makes this one of the best depictions of Vietnam War era combat I have read."

- Paul W. Westermeyer, Public Historian, Marine Corps History Division

"I served with many combat veterans in my early days of the Corps and this book certainly gave me an appreciation for the war they fought..."

- Lt Gen Rich Natonski USMC (Ret).

"......incredible detail...great read...compelling to say the least...aviation detail was right on...I know once I started reading it, it would be non-stop, and it was. "

- Major Fred Allison USMC (Ret).
