A relativistic electromagnetic soliton solution in the model of a one-dimensional, unbounded, cold, collisionless plasma is obtained without using the envelope approximation. The breaking of solitons with over-critical amplitudes is observed. The stability of undercritical solitons and the breaking of overcritical solitons are demonstrated by a particle-in-cell computer simulation.
