Former U.S. diplomat captures Cold War's humorous side

 

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. --- C-C-Cold War Syndrome, G.H. Spaulding's captivating account of the human and humorous sides of the Cold War, is now available in hardcover from 1stBooks Library.

 

An award-winning author, Spaulding is a former naval aviator, defense intelligence officer and U.S. diplomat who deftly guides the reader on a fascinating global journey that winds through the geopolitics of the decisive latter half of the Cold War.

 

C-C-Cold War Syndrome is like a scrapbook. Its 43 nonfiction short stories are like colorful snapshots that record the author's gradual loss of innocence as an eager participant in the intense American-Soviet rivalry for world dominance. Initially inspired to enter naval aviation by Nikita Khrushchev's promise -- "We will bury you" -- he ultimately befriends one of his career-long Soviet enemies.

 

The first story, "The Russians Are Coming, Etc.," and the last, "Anatoli," provide the perfect symmetry to a collection of touching anecdotes encompassing forays into naval aviation when things don't always go "according to Hoyle" and glimpses behind the scenes at the White House, the Pentagon and the historic American-Soviet arms talks in Geneva. While not a single shot is fired between the covers of this book, there is just enough tragic irony interspersed among the laughs to maintain perspective as the United States and Soviet Union engage in history's epic superpower confrontation.

 

C-C-Cold War Syndrome is a must-read for students who enjoy political-military history with a humorous twist and is sure to be a keeper on everyone's library shelf. Two of the stories in this collection, "Dilbert Dunker" and "KGB," are national award winners.

 

Spaulding, who lives in Colorado Springs with his wife Karen, has also authored a number of magazine articles and two action-thriller novels, DECREE and TAKEOUT. He is a proud member of The Order of Daedalians, a national fraternity of active duty and former military pilots.
