Format: Paperback
This is a well written auto-biography of Dr. Charles Hostler who was the U.S. Ambassador to the State of Bahrain. Charles comes from humble origins and after serving in the US military and being part of the CIA eventually becomes an Ambassador. Charles is a kind, humble philanthropist and a personal friend. I have recommended or donated this book to various friends who were most impressed by his story. It is a wonderfully written book and an easy read because of its interesting content.
I highly recommend this book to anyone.

Format: Paperback
Beautifully written and richly developed, this book really takes you on a journey of a young man who ends up serving in the OSS (turned CIA), Air Force, State Department and eventually as an ambassador. It's informative, historic, exciting, funny at times and altogether quite epic. After reading through it all, you'll probably feel, as I did, pretty inadequate when it comes to life accomplishments. They really don't make em like they use to.

We had the honor to be seated at the same table for a dinner show with Mr. Charles Hostler and his lovey wife Chin in Paris France a few years ago. Unaware who these people where we started a causal conversation. Mrs. Chin told us of Mr. Charles Hostler and how proud she was of his tributes. After speaking during the show I asked if he had ever considered writing a book that was when he told me that he had indeed written Soldier to Ambassador. When we arrived home I purchased the book, we found it interesting and a great honor to have been able to meet a hero.
