“The reader will note that the people described in the book are not super men or women, but normal people put into extraordinary situations by the circumstances of the Cold War. Due to the large variety of personalities involved and the extreme demands of the complex systems, circumstances are sometimes created that few if any fiction writers could create. The result is that the reader will, at times, be spellbound but always kept interested by the dramas presented. If the reader gets to laugh at times, that’s a plus!” --Dr.Tracy Baker

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Dr. Tracy Baker’s new book tells the story of a man whose job during the Cold War was to prepare and maintain America’s missiles for a nuclear war. The Cold War era was a time of international paranoia that created tremendous stress for the whole world. The experience of surprise attacks during WWII, combined with nuclear weapons, created the very real possibility of an unforeseeable attack that had drastically worse consequences than traditional warfare. Christians were not immune from this reality. They had to live and work in a world living under the fear of a nuclear holocaust. In “Cold Warrior Hell,” Dr. Baker sets forth the experiences and stories of a Cold Warrior as he lived and worked through that difficult time in history. Though someone dramatized, he has kept his stories as realistic as possible.

All names are fictitious in order to protect the privacy of the individuals involved. There are stories that will be humorous to the readers, but all the stories recreate the dramatic atmosphere of the time.
