Once every year, in the city of Sunja, gladiators meet within the arena known as Sunja's Pit. Some men enter for the lure of fortune, some for the fame, and some simply for the fight. The games continue for days until a champion is finally crowned. Or until all involved perish. Four companions struggle to change their lives in and out of the arena as it becomes clear that to be a Free Trained pit fighter is to live with a mark on one's head.

Marine lieutenant Waino Mellas and his comrades in Bravo Company have been dropped into the mountain jungle of Vietnam. Standing in their way are the North Vietnamese, the monsoon rain and mud, leeches and tigers, and disease and malnutrition. When the company is surrounded by the enemy, the Marines are thrust into the raw and all-consuming terror of combat. The experience will change them forever.
