Sitting on the fifty yard line of the Cold War at a desolate listening post on the border of East Germany, Walter experiences his transformation to manhood at the expense of his innocence. This rowdy, raunchy account is told from his point of view running the spectrum from drinking, sex, and youthful pranks to the gravity of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Kennedys assassination, and the constant fear that at any moment, the war may turn from cold to very hot. He finally comes to terms with his new self, including true love, and a near-death experience.This account, based on true events, sweeps the range of emotions, from laughter to tears- from beauty to horror. Veterans and non-veterans of both genders will enjoy this delightful, down-to-earth story.
