The Secrets Of Inchon
The Untold Story Of The Most Daring Covert Mission Of The Korean WarBook - 2002
"The Secrets of Inchon is a story of heroism and courage, only now come to light after fifty years: the true account of Navy Commander (then Lieutenant) Eugene Franklin Clark - a man, according to his colleagues, with "the nerves of a burglar and the flair of a Barbary Coast pirate" - and the daring covert mission that helped change the course of the Korean War." "In the year 2000, historian Thomas Fleming published an article about a crucial but little-known mission of the Korean War, led by a thirty-nine-year-old Navy lieutenant named Eugene Clark. After it appeared, Clark's widow told Fleming that her husband had written up his own account, which was now in a safe-deposit box. Would he like to read it? Fleming would - and when he did, he discovered an extraordinary document: a vividly written first-person chronicle, filled with color, detail, and event, as honest and revealing a wartime narrative as he'd read in many years."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
