Some of the toughest battles we’ve fought since Warriors Inc. was founded have not been on movie sets or television soundstages. Granted changing the way Hollywood conceives, produces and presents military films and TV programs has been a monumental, uphill fight that’s lasted nearly two decades, but there’s an audience in America and overseas that clamors for more than we can give in the limited running time of a film or a television series. Those folks are avid readers of military-themed books and we are avid writers in just that genre but it’s hard to bring unknown authors and understanding readers together. That’s the battle we’ve decided to fight with the formation of Warriors Publishing Group. Unfortunately, commercial publishing is a very tough nut to crack and most editors in that world would be hard pressed to tell you which end of a weapon launches the bullet. We’ve taken the tried and true military approach to that situation: Innovate, Adapt and Overcome.
The Warriors Publishing Group is the brainchild and special interest of Julia Dewey Dye, Ph.D., who leads this charge directed at bringing our audiences some of the very best in military-themed literature and she’s a tough taskmaster. She’s rounding up some excellent works by combat-veteran authors who want their works offered to people who get the message: War stories need to be published, distributed and consumed if we are to understand the mentality and motivation of military people. And we must do that to appreciate their service and sacrifice on behalf of this nation and our people. That’s a worthy endeavor and it’s what our little band of authors and editors is dedicated to at the Warriors Publishing Group.
As we grow, expand and include more titles you’ll be able to purchase and read works by veteran authors from World War II, Korea, Vietnam and more modern conflicts such as Iraq and Afghanistan. All those books will have one thing in common. They’ll be written by real vets who are telling real stories or fictional tales based on real events observed from behind rifle sights.
