Abstract:

This publication reflects a compilation of excerpts from an unpublished broader treatment that recounts the nearly five decades of delicate coexistence between two nations known as the superpowers during the international conflict known as the Cold War. Publication of this text fulfills one of my principal purposes in the original manuscript that is, to pay tribute to that special breed of American heroes known as the Cold Warriors-the men and women who served in the strategic nuclear forces during the Cold War. Another purpose is to provide a brief parallel view of Soviet war fighters. These two opposing groups of warriors served their respective countries faithfully during those critical years of roller coaster politics, inconsistent diplomacy, and occasional lunacy.
