Book three of the best selling and award winning series 'We Were Soldiers Too' was just named Book of the Year.
Online PR News – 05-December-2016 – Did you know most Cold War veterans feel their service is unappreciated? Did you know some even feel ashamed when being thanked for their service? Even the federal government doesn't recognize Cold War veterans even though there were more casualties during the Cold War than during the War on Terror. It's tough being a peacetime veteran in a wartime era.
40% of Cold War veterans are disabled! This number would be higher but the Veterans Administration doesn't acknowledge PTSD issues from veterans who served in Germany, South Korea, or anywhere else under the constant threat of war. Veterans on the DMZ patrolled with live ammunition and were constantly under the threat of assault from North Korean infiltrators. Veterans in Germany served near ground zero of a nuclear war had the Soviets ever crossed the border. They trained and prepared hard, knowing their life expectancy was less than forty-eight hours in both of these hot-spots. Stateside units trained just as hard, certain they would be deployed at any moment to face the Soviets somewhere in the world. Because of the Cold War veterans, the world never had to recover from a third World War, which beyond any doubts would have been a nuclear war. Cold War veterans were the wall around the world that kept the Soviets behind the Iron Curtain.
Bob Kern is proud to introduce his award winning book series We Were Soldiers Too. The series is a documentary style nonfiction history of the Cold War told through the careers of the veterans who served during this critical time in history.
The first book in the series - Serving as a Reagan Soldier During the Cold War, is the authors autobiography and was a Finalist with Independent Authors Network for Nonfiction Autobiography Book of the Year in 2015. This is a personal account of military service and the historical events that were happening during President Reagan's time in office as the world faced the possibility of nuclear war. The author was in the US Army from November 1980 until March 1988 which coincided with President Reagan's time in office. He quickly went from a naive seventeen-year-old boy to a dedicated, die hard soldier, ready to sacrifice his life for his country. The book is about the difficult job of serving in the infantry during a very critical time of the Cold War.
Book 2: We Were Soldiers Too; A Historical Look at Germany During the Cold War from the US Soldiers Who Served There. Ground zero for a nuclear war was just over an hour northeast of Frankfurt, Germany. The small town of Fulda is nestled at the base of a natural gap in the hilly wooded terrain of West Germany and was a corridor between East and West Germany. Referred to as the Fulda Gap, this area was very likely the path the Warsaw forces and the Soviet Union would have taken to invade Europe. This book covers the careers of seventeen veterans in Germany from 1960 to 1989 and their different responsibilities as they trained hard and remained vigilante for an advance across the border by the Soviet forces amassed on the other side. Included is the story of one of the first women to be in a combat arms unit serving in an Honest John missile crew with the capability of firing nuclear warheads. Read about a cook who ended up assigned to secure the area in front of the hospital the Iran Hostages were secretly taken to upon their release. And see what is was like serving in Berlin, surrounded on all sides by communism.
Book 3: We Were Soldiers Too: The Unknown Battle to Defend the Demilitarized Zone Against North Korea During the Cold War is the compelling, true stories of US veterans tasked with the dangerous job securing the DMZ, the most defended border in the world, against the infiltration of the communist regime of North Korea and their allies- the Peoples Republic of China and the Soviet Union. This book takes the reader on a journey through the history of the Cold War and the defense of the DMZ from the perspective of nine American veterans who served in different capacities in South Korea from 1962 through 1991 in this small country surrounded by the threat of communism. The soldiers were responsible for enforcing the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War. The North Koreans violated it almost daily sending spies, marauders, hit squads, and ambush patrols into the southern controlled portion of the DMZ in their never-ending effort to destabilize South Korea and cause its collapse. Their blatant violations of the agreement left a bloody trail of dead bodies that includes many American soldiers.
