Have lived close to keyport and bangor all my life, new found respect for the work they all do.
I offered my son $50 to read the first chapter and then honestly tell me his time was wasted. Unable stop reading until he finished the entire book in record time. PS...I still have the $50 to boot.
It was a very interesting time as we waited for our wives to do some shopping. I regret that I didn't even find out his name.
Wonderful writing, wonderful reading. I really enjoy a well written story concerning the truth. I am convinced that most everyone has a good story concerning their life if they only had the ability to put it into words. This book is true history, well written.
I liked very much that the events listed are put in a time frame by relating them to other events of the Cold War. The authors concentrate on their own story but on the "event horizont" there are looming salient figures like Reagan, Kissinger or Gorbatchev.
Also revealing were the unearthed Soviet sources. Well, those never hit the headlines, the book shows the path leading to the Kursk catastrophe.
