I served on the DEW Line and knew many who served at AC&W sites. To read other peoples' impressions is interesting. And I never knew a person who worked in such places who didn't believe our stories would make a good book -- just like "MASH".

This author can tell a story well.

A well put together book on the hardships of serving at remote radar sites. Each chapter was written by a different person and then put to together to make a very inetesting look at hardships and good times while serving in remote locations in Japan. Excelently presented and a very interesting read.

COLD WAR IN A COLD PLACE is a story about the troops who manned US Air Force radar sites in Hokkaido and northern Honshu as part of the air defense of northern Japan during the early years (1946-1960) of the Cold War before this responsibility was turned over to the Japanese Self Defense Force. The book contains mostly accounts of personal experiences by men stationed at the various sites.

All contributors were either members or employees of the 511th Aircraft Control and Warning Group. The activities described took place during a critical period marked by high tensions between the United States and Russia when the air defenses of both sides were continually probed, sometimes even resulting in armed clashes and downed aircraft.

COLD WAR IN A COLD PLACE is an often ignored but important tale told by the people who were actually there and edited by Jerry Hanks, a gifted writer who was officer-in-charge of a liaison detachment linking the 511th with the 4th Fighter Wing of Chitose Air Base in Hokkaido. I recommend this book without reservation to anyone interested in the history of the Cold War.

I was there from 1958 to 1960 at Det 42. Spent many days and some nights on top of the mountain. And it was a cold place with average snow fall of 177 inches. Great book told like it was.
