Colonel Jim Schnell (USAF, retired) reveals an inside view of how military attaches function in foreign countries based on his experiences as a military attaché in China over a 14 year period. The book is divided into six primary sections. Section One addresses attaché work by describing topics the attaché can consider during the performance of duties. Section Two works through a variety of areas that illustrate aspects of Chinese culture. Section Three deals with his overall foundation in Asia that includes his work as a Fulbright Scholar. Section Four looks at primary fieldwork considerations that have application in China and other countries. Section Five overviews various angles of U.S. military functioning and how this impacts the work of the attaché. Section Six primarily describes Schnell’s work as a military contractor after he retired from the Air Force.
