I am about two-thirds through "These Guys" and I wanted to write a five-star review right here and now.

My "collection"/ library has ... whatever ... around 3000 books ... mostly about this general time period ... and "These Guys" goes right to the top of the most valuable list. And I hope the author publishes a second volume of material that she probably continued to collect after she went to press with this book or that got edited out for length.

[When I was about half-finished with this book, I did write a review / comment, but somehow it got deleted.]

Anyway, buy this book.

The recollections of the events are pretty amazing.

I called it a collection of memoirs ... but it's much more than that ... it's the history of the Cold War ... as told by people who were on the ground [or in the air] doing the actual work ... in the actual combat. And there WAS a lot of combat.

You can read other books and I will list a few later, but arguably "These Guys" provides a framework that ties all the other books about the Cold War together. I mean, like, I participated in the Cold War ... and was at some of the places mentioned in this book. Saw and experienced enough strange things to understand that these memoirs accurately reflect what was going on. You have to read this book word-for-word, because it does not have any filler. It's just solid stuff as told by the participants. If you skim or read too fast, you will miss something important.

Please read Larry Tart's books after reading "These Guys" and you will see how these narrations fit in and help pull the overall picture together.

I'm currently reading your book, "These Guys" and have to admit that it
is bringing back loads of memories, fond and otherwise - of my 21 years
with the USAFSS.

I was a 203X1-MA and served with the 6913th in Bremerhaven, the
6910th in Darmstadt, the 6912th in Berlin (2 tours), Det 204 in Sinop,
Turkey, and spent some time behind a podium at GAFB teaching future
voice intercept processing specialists what to expect at an overseas
site.

One thing that I will comment on now is the Email about the Russians
flooding the lower levels of TCA in Berlin because they didn't want to
lose any troops to the entrenched SS. I had heard that story from
several different sources, and never really saw anything verifying it's
veracity, but have to believe it knowing that there are/were as many
floors down as there were up. Walking in those underground "tunnels"
was spooky, to say the least.

Anyway, thanks for writing the book. A trip down memory lane ever so
often dusts off the cobwebs in the back of my mind.
