Blackwell North Amer
June 1, 1950: Captain Ken McCoy's report on probable North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that not only is it promptly suppressed, but McCoy himself is kicked out of the Corps. At least two outfits, however, are not impressed by such infighting: the fledgling CIA, which promptly hires McCoy; and the North Koreans, who on June 25 invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately, veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours' notice. Fleming Pickering and his daredevil son Malcolm, Ed Banning, George Hart, Clyde Dawkins, William Dunn, Ernie Zimmerman - for them, and their sweethearts and wives, names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality, and Korea will become not only a new battlefield...but their greatest challenge of all.

Well written and entertaining (as expected from Griffin) but not one of his best
