‘Tales from the Cold War’ Featured in AUSA Extra Newsletter

Tales from the Cold War, an AUSA memoir by Michael D. Mahler

Retired Col. Michael D. Mahler, author of Tales from the Cold War, was recently featured in an issue of the AUSA Extra weekly newsletter. In an interview with AUSA Book Program Director Joseph Craig, Mahler shares what inspired him to join the Army, lessons that should be applied in today’s Army, and stories from his years as a soldier in the Cold War.

“The Ukrainian crisis is focusing attention on Europe, with the threat of the largest armed conflict in the region since the end of the Cold War.

“The Army is deploying forces to the area to help support NATO defenses, but the numbers are small compared to those of the Cold War era, when almost 300,000 soldiers defended the West from Soviet aggression.

“Retired Col. Michael Mahler was one of those soldiers.”
