“Reading this book is like eating cashews,” proclaimed one reviewer. “Once you start, you can’t stop.”

A must read for students of political-military history, C-C-Cold War Syndrome is a collection of 43 non-fiction short stories from award-winning author G.H. Spaulding. They weave a fascinating account of the human and humorous side of the Cold War. While not a single shot is fired between the covers of this book, there is just enough tragic irony interspersed among the laughs to keep things in perspective as the United States and Soviet Union engage in history’s epic superpower confrontation.

An entertaining global journey that includes forays into naval aviation when things don’t always go “according to Hoyle” and unforgettable glimpses behind the scenes at the White House, at the Pentagon and at the historic American-Soviet arms talks in Geneva. Meet some of the Cold War victors...Booker, Moon, Foggy Bob, Blotto, Snake, Beaver, Jay Beasley, Fawn Hall, The Purple People Eater, Dracula and Flash Gordon. And some of the losers...head Soviet Nikita Khrushchev and KGB agent Sergei Kryuchkov. Then experience the demise of the Soviet Union through the eyes of senior Soviet army colonel Anatoli Yurchenko.

Two of the stories in this collection...“Dilbert Dunker” and “KGB”...are national award winners.
