Observing Our Hermanos de Armas: U.S. Military Attaches in Guatemala, Cuba, and Bolivia, 1950-1964

By Robert O. Kirkland | Go to book overview

Acknowledgments

This book is in part the story of officers and gentlemen. I would like to take the time here to thank some officers, gentlemen, and gentlewomen who gave their time, energy, and wisdom to help me along the way. I begin by thanking my wife, Victoria, who has known me for as long as I have been working on this book. She always showed me the love and support that is so necessary to complete a project such as this. I would also like to thank my mother and father, Sue and John, and my brothers, Joe and Dave, for always supporting me.

At Routledge, series editor David Mares was a model of supportive, patient, and insightful counsel for a first time author. Kimberly Guinta, associate editor, asked me to contribute to the series and helped guide me through the intricacies of the production phase to print. I could not think of a better publisher to work with than Routledge.

At the University of Pittsburgh I would like to thank Peter Karsten, for his guidance and advice. Harold Sims convinced me to attend Pittsburgh for graduate studies and most importantly (from my perspective), urged me to attend a Spanish immersion program in Cuernavaca, Mexico, my first summer at Pittsburgh. It was there where I met my wife, Victoria, who was also studying at the same escuela para extranjeros. At Pittsburgh I would also like to thank Reid Andrews, Paul Hammond, Silvia Borzutzky, Donald Goldstein, and the late Michael Jiménez.

At the United States Military Academy I would like to acknowledge Colonel Robert Doughty, Professor and Head of the Department of History, for selecting me to come teach at West Point and supporting me in this endeavor. Marsha and Linda Frey and Sam Watson took too much time out of their busy schedules to help proofread the book and comment on my drafts. The Faculty Research Development Fund at the Military Academy helped fund two trips to archives for this research.

This is a story about attachés and many of them kindly gave their time to speak to me regarding their experiences: Wendell Bevan, Manuel Chavez, Edward Fox, Phillip Klepak, Lionel Krisel, Aloysius McCormick, Richard Park, and Howard Slaton.
