Terry Burke joined the Canadian army in 1964 and was posted to Germany with The Royal Canadian Regiment. He has done nine U.N. tours of duty in Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel, and Syria, and was active in Ottawa-Hull during the FLQ crisis. Burke retired to London, Ontario, with his wife, whom he met during his first tour of Germany.
"I strongly recommend this book to all NATO veterans - I can guarantee it will bring back many half-forgotten memories. For others, it paints a great picture of the every-day life of the sometimes overlooked but numerous NATO warriors. [Terry Burke's] casual, upretentious style makes the book a great read." -- Esprit de Corps military magazine, 20111201
