Summary
In 1950, Captain Ken McCoy's report on North Korean hostilities meets with so much bureaucratic displeasure that he is promptly booted out of the Corps-and just as promptly picked up by the fledgling CIA. Soon, his predictions come true: on June 25th the North Koreans invade across the 38th parallel. Immediately veterans scattered throughout military and civilian life are called up, many with only seventy-two hours notice. For these men and their families, names such as Inchon and Pusan will acquire a new, bloody reality-and become their greatest challenge of all..
