About this book

This book is an insider’s account of the search for missing American servicemen who became trapped in the Soviet Union and the US government’s efforts to free them or discover their fates. The book, which is based on years of  work as a consultant to the US government, includes archive research that took place in Russia and four other republics of the Soviet Union as the USSR broke apart. Volume I explores the history of missing American servicemen, with particular emphasis on thousands who were not accounted for during the Korean War and Cold War era.  As US relations with Russia and North Korea become more intense, this book is an extremely timely resource for scholars, laymen, and policymakers.

About the authors

Paul M. Cole, an independent scholar with rich experience in the US Department of Defense, is an established figure in the POW/MIA Accounting Community. The leak of his internal report on malfeasance in the Joint POW/MIA Accounting Command resulted in two Congressional hearings, two major Associated Press stories and front-page stories in many countries around the world resulting in a comprehensive reorganization of the POW/MIA Accounting Community. Dr. Cole’s three-volume RAND report, POW/MIA Issues (1994), was purchased by thousands of individuals, research institutions and university libraries.  Dr. Cole received a PhD from the Johns Hopkins Paul Nitze School of Advanced International Studies, MSFS from the Georgetown University Edmund A. Walsh Graduate School of Foreign Service, and a B.A. from Gustavus Adolphus College.
