Cold War III


Dew Line Duty was the first novel

I can remember reading right through

(I was a slow reader and rarely finished

and even got bogged down in the Jungle Book.)


The hero, Dale of the Mounted,

was sent to investigate Russian spies

who were infiltrating the DEW Line

the Distant Early Warning Line,


a system of radar stations up North

to detect incoming Soviet bombers

The spies were hiding amongst

a boatload of refugees from Hungary

which even then seemed a little unlikely.


Dale was no mastermind, that was clear,

and certainly not somebody

you were supposed to be afraid of-

just a guy doing his job, all by himself.
