"A distinguished authority on the role of humor in American culture, Joseph Boskin is a comedic genius in his own right. In his new book, which is set on the icy tundra of Greenland, home of Thule Air Force Base during the Korean War, truth is stranger than fiction. Those with a quirky sense of reality will love Corporal Boskin’s Cold Cold War. "—Bill Tuttle, author of "Daddy’s Gone to War": The Second World War in the Lives of America’s Children
