Overview

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.

    Cold War History: At the Ground Level

    McDonald deftly negotiates a personal tale that shows how one man is himself a metaphor for the Cold War a living link between the snow drifts of Korea, the forests of divided Germany and the jungles of 'Nam. _Cold War Warrior_ reminds us that the hooey about the 'Greatest Generation' only tells half the tale, as another equally great generation of soldiers clocked in against communism just as WWII closed.
