They are attended by a diverse cast of characters, military and civilian, whose domain extends from the streets of Yokohama, to the halls of the Dai Ichi Building, to the treacherous landscape of Korea. The story entails courage and cowardice, misbehavior and intrigue, and love and lust. Complementing the gripping drama is the biting commentary that traces the military progress of the conflict and challenges many of the commonly accepted perceptions about the Korean War.The book stands as a unique story of a period and place rarely approached in the realm of fiction.
