Item description for Cold War Warrior by Will McDonald...
Cold War Warrior is an autobiographical account of a U.S. soldier's experience in America's cold war with the Soviets. While Will McDonald's military career spanned from Korea to Vietnam, and he participated in both wars, he considers himself primarily a cold war warrior. McDonald entered the Army in 1951 as an idealistic private and left the military in 1971, a seasoned Lieutenant Colonel. This is an insider's view of military life and the rich voice and humor of the author makes it a fascinating read, including, at one point, accounts of just how close the U.S. came to a nuclear confrontation with the Soviet Union. Cold War Warrior may make you cry, will definitely make you laugh, and will always keep your interest.

Gripping People's History Dec 29, 2005
History at the ground level, McDonald weaves a personal narrative from Korea, to Germany to Vietnam. Less the story of one solider's rise through Special Forces and OCS than an account of how one logic guided nuclear weapons across moonlit German forests and sent another -- equally great -- generation to two East Asian Wars. A must read for Cold War buffs and military ethusiasts.
