Whether you want to hold the book physically, read it on your Kindle device, or listen to it on your next road trip, we've got you covered! The hilarity is the same no matter the format!
A terrific collection of Cold War G.I. mischief! Brought back a ton of great memories!.- Major Sean McLaughlin, U.S. Army (Retired)
For those of us who served in uniform--ANY uniform during the 1980s, this is a road march down Memory Lane. **WARNING!** Do NOT have hot coffee in your hand while reading this! You'll get it all over your nice new book! The recounts of chicanery and shenanigans are real. The names have been changed because it isn't known if the statute of limitations has run out yet. This collection of Cold War stories belongs in any former soldier's rucksack.- M. Dupre, via Amazon.com
Had me laughing and remembering things I had forgotten from my time in the service in the mid to late 80's. Hopefully the first book in a series!- James C. Chesnutt, via Amazon.com
A great insight into what life was like during the 1980's in the "Cold War" Army. As an Army veteran of this era in Germany I could relate to most of Scott's exploits. He is "spot on" describing the hilarious adventures he was a part of during peacetime military duty and training exercises. My only problem with the book is it was too short! I can't wait to read future volumes, keep 'em coming Scott!- Ed Heidelbach, via Amazon.com
The author has a wonderfully colorful story telling capability that puts you in the moment. For veterans of any armed service it will bring you back to your time in, basic training, and all the related hijinks that can, and will, occur when you put GIs together, add a dash [or few gallons] of adult beverages and sprinkle in some courageous adventuring in a foreign land.- D. Ingram, via Amazon.com
A fantastically funny romp through Cold War Europe! Some of the stories will have your jaw hitting the floor and your side literally hurting with laughter. The stories are all bite-sized, ranging from a couple of pages to 10 pages in length, and you can read them pretty much in any order. This would be a great gift for a veteran or active duty service person.- Roderick Samuels, via Amazon.com
I just finished reading Cold War Diaries. It took a while to complete, because each story made me remember one from my service days (70s-90s). Have not laughed that much in a very long time. They also made me remember the stories my father told me about his Army service during WW II in Burma and India. It would seem that the opportunities for mayhem have not diminished nor are likely too. Thanks. Looking forward to Vol 2.- Alan Kimball, via the author's blog
OMG... Absolutely spot on Scott!!! You definitely took me down memory lane with your book. I'm still laughing now just as hard as I did nearly 30 years ago when I first heard, or witnessed, these stories firsthand, lol. By the way, I also picked up two copies of the book. One for keepsake on my bookshelf and the other one that has already caught some spilled (spit-up) hefe, lol! Please give me a heads-up on FB when you start working on Volume 2, Thanks. Awesome job Scott... We Pierce!- PEH, via Amazon.com
Joes: Cold War Diaries Volume 1 arrived yesterday. Already 66 pages in and it has activated the memory banks. A recommended read for all you 80s soldiers, especially if you spent time in Deutschland. Job well done Scott Burkett.- Keith Binkley, via Facebook
I laughed until I cried.
I feel like I'm there - again. The silly
