Next Mission provides rare insights, based on four years of military attaché duty, during one of the most troubled periods of relations with America’s oldest ally, France. Grounded in reality and personal experience, it opens the world of real-life, high-level diplomatic experiences based on adversarial U.S. policies, personal relationships, and family life in one of the world’s most captivating cities and countries. Become Colonel Steinke’s personal ‘attaché’ as you walk with him through events that no international spy novelist could capture, no international fiction writer could develop, and no motion picture producer could film. Nothing beats reality.
