Tiger Bravo's War is the 2018 winner of the Military Writers Society of America Gold Medal in history and the Founders Award for an "exceptional work of literature." The book is a riveting, poignant, well-researched nonfiction account of a company of green, unbloodied paratroopers becoming battle-hardened veterans during the Vietnam War.

Tiger Bravo's War follows a band of young paratroopers, from the same battalion in the elite 101st Airborne Division as portrayed in Stephen Ambrose's World War II best seller Band of Brothers, during their first year of combat in the Vietnam War - from a bayonet charge in a legendary VC stronghold and street fighting during the 1968 Tet Offensive, to a rescue mission of a surrounded platoon and rock & roll in the company mess hall, and much more. Thirty of their number would be killed in action and, collectively, they would amass a staggering 150 Purple Hearts. It is also about everyday life in a war zone and the strange, often harsh, sometimes beautiful, tropical environment in which the war was fought. Lastly, it is a soldier's tale of the young men of Tiger Bravo - the son a a World War II Japanese fighter pilot, who wins the Silver Star fighting as an American infantryman; the tough kid from rural Texas, who leaves a safe job cleaning astronaut offices in Houston to volunteer to be a paratrooper; the medic, abandoned by his mother, who would find in Tiger Bravo the family he never had, and many others, each with their own unique story.
