My Blog

Retirement. Publishers, thank you for the many years of reading pleasure you gave me, but all good things must come to an end. Due to failing eyesight I am forced to retire. I can no longer review your books, and any that you send will be donated to the local library, unread. Do not send any more. I can only read for a couple hours every day, and this does not allow me to finish a book in reasonable time. I will be devoting time to my own books from now on, and reading on a personal level. Books that interest me. I prefer paperbacks and hardbacks, not eBooks. My eyesight has been failing the last few years, and I cannot handle hundreds of review books any more. My books are still available for review. Anyone interested in reviewing any of them, they are found in the Link to Tom’s Books On Amazon. Contact me for pdf copies at

Cold War In Europe

The Cold War began after WWII and lasted until the Berlin Wall came down. During that time, it heated up numerous times, including the Cuban Crisis, the Cypress Crisis, South America, Korea, Granada, and elsewhere. While American Forces in Germany had the Berlin Wall, and the Eastern Block controlled by the Russians, American Forces in France had the Communication Zone, with Top Secret Coded radio transmissions. The Russians were trying their best to decode those transmissions. Pictured above is my Squad in France (I’m the SP/4 kneeling in front). Here I am (Corporal now, with Sultan) in Turkey during the Cypress Crisis.
