Tens of thousands of U.S. soldiers died in Korea to stop the spread of Communism and the aggression of North Korea. But those were not the only victims of the war. Now that more than 50 years have passed since the start of that war – June 25, 1950 – it’s safe to disclose the secrets of the intelligence war against the Communists of North Korea as told through the eyes of one man. When the war began, refugees from North Korea left their families to help the South Korean army and the United Nations expel Communism from the Korean peninsula. These hidden heroes infiltrated enemy lines, but many disappeared into unknown fields, mountains and rivers.
My Father’s War by Dog Ear Publishing author Hwang Ha-yong reveals, at last, the true story of these unnamed, forgotten members of the Korean guerrilla force. Chapters in the book include such intriguing titles as Liberation and the Korean War, The Germ War Scare, Life in Wartime and Goodbye My Comrades Forever. The book’s unforgettable words are backed up with black and white maps and photos of war, the author’s family and colleague, as well as an extensive bibliography and Web sites for those who want to explore the topic further.
The author, who became a writer and music composer after the war, died two days after finishing the third draft of his book. His son, Hwang Sung, who served as his editor, conducted extensive research, visiting the places his father had been and interviewing his father’s former comrades to make sure his father’s accounts told the true story of this moment in history.
