“Exciting reading.”—Publishers Weekly

“A remarkable story.”—Army magazine

“A gripping revelation of the American-led guerrilla war deep behind enemy lines in Korea.”—Lt. Gen. Harold G. Moore, USA (Ret.) and coauthor of We Were Soldiers Once . . . and Young

“A rare combination of an exciting adventure story, a well-documented special operations history, and a superbly written tale of war. Malcom and Martz have accurately described the missing link between World War Two’s partisans and today’s Special Forces in a way that makes Rambo-type fiction boring.”—Col. Rod Paschall, USA (Ret.), former commander of Delta Force and author of Korea: Witness to War
