A short read about an odd little corner of Cold War history that exploded -- very briefly -- into a double axe murder, followed by the deployment of 3 infantry companies, backed by the Navy and Air Force, to -- blow up a tree? This book takes you inside the daily life of a US military compound on the edge of enemy territory, at a time when a new uproar was always imminent. This seems to be the true tale of a war that almost happened.
