Noted historian and author Ken Robison will be on tour with his latest book, “Cold War Montana,” (Arcadia, paperback $23.99).

His book chronicles Montana’s role in fighting communism and supporting the military, from the missile systems spread throughout the state to the soldiers — both male and female — who served during the Vietnam War.

Robison, himself a retired naval intelligence officer, has been recognized for his historical research and preservation work. He has also written books about Montana’s involvement during the Civil War and has been honored by the Montana Historical Society as one of its “Heritage Keepers.”
