Cold War Gets Warmer

The Cold War has recently gotten warmer. The recent events in the Ukraine has revealed the true nature of the Russian mindset. Exhibited time after time the Soviet desire to acquire the surrounding territories of the West has remained steadfast since the end of World War II. I’ll start this conversation by calling attention to one of the more notable architects of the Russian view, Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushche. Born April 3, 1894 he led the Soviet Union as First Secretary of the Communist Party from 1953 until 1964. His big break came in 1939 when Joseph Stalin sent him to govern the Ukraine and continue the purge of all who refused to bow to the Russian takeover. The recent headlines out of the Ukraine seem to support the age old premise that history does in deed repeat itself.

    By jOHN – This review is from: Redeye Fulda Cold: A War in the Cold Novel

    Funny, insightful and history with a twist of irreverence. A blend of History Channel told by characters from M.A.S.H. I found the story line fascinating and knowing the author was ‘there’ made it come alive. The background, footnotes and attention to detail of the characters and locations brings the story alive and hard to put down. Not sure how to top this story. Well done.
