This is the astonishing story about the most powerful US spy during the Korean War era. He obtained North Korean plans, first ignored by US Army brass, and was very close to the South Korean president. He set up and oversaw a vast spy network. It is also an account of the massacres, carpet bombings, blunders,and cover-ups– all repeated during the Vietnam War– and it provides an insight to the North Korean attitude towards the USA.

With the Winter Olympics in South Korea right around the corner and a joint North-South Korean ice hockey team taking to the rink, this book is particularly fascinating!
