Hostler (1919-2014). Hostlers experiences are quite extraordinary and his memoirs capture all the major scenes--from hawking newspapers on San Francisco cable-cars, to prowling Westwood as a UCLA undergraduate, to working as a road warrior for the California Highway Patrol, to his stint as an ace pilot for the U.S. Army Air Corps, to his East Coast secret agent-training in the OSS (the precursor to the CIA), to his work with real world James Bond-types working in the bowels of Englands MI6 (now known as the SIS), Hostlers life was a dynamic odyssey of service, adventure, and discovery. All of these varied postings serving as mere pitstops in a singular voyage that culminates with Hostlers appointment as U.S. Ambassador to Bahrain (1989-1993) and his activities behind the scenes during the Persian Gulf War. Hostlers memoir is lavishly illustrated with eighty pictures, sixty in full-color.
