For individuals who served in the military during the Cold War, this book provides an important context for understanding covert operations in Germany/Soviet Union at that time. The author has undertaken an exhaustive survey of all available sources and conducted interviews with soldiers from that special unit. Little of this is documented by the Army itself. My husband and I lived in Germany in the early 70’s while he was stationed there as a newly minted graduate of West Point. We were married 40 years before I learned he was transporting nuclear warheads during that period. At a dinner at our home two years ago we learned from a dear friend and classmate that he had been part of that special ops unit. Gives a great context for what we were doing there during the Cold War period.
Stories are clogged with military acronyms; the narrator sounds like a robot. But glad to know these soldiers were well trained and prepared to do difficult tasks if war ever broke out.
