Epic in the Forgotten War

Ken Filing

Tony Marino has reached a crossroads in life. With high school commencement just two weeks away, Marino is definitely ready to explore the world that lies outside Cleveland, Ohio. But times are tough in 1949, leaving Marino only one viable option-to join the navy. As he enlists, he has no idea that the Korean War is about to break out. Soon after his ship is assigned to action in Korea, Marino is sent on an undercover mission with two shipmates, Sully and Peacock, to provide valuable information to General MacArthur, who is planning an invasion of Inchon. As his mission increases in intensity, Marino and his shipmates bravely face great danger as they scout out three islands, gather critical information, and finally return safely to the ship. But as the war progresses, it is not long before their ship is assigned to help in the evacuation of Hungnam in North Korea-a fateful decision that leads Marino and Sully to imprisonment in a clandestine hospital known for its inhumane experiments. In this military thriller loosely based on real-life events, two American sailors must rely on the CIA and a beautiful Korean girl to escape-before it is too late.
