Format: Paperback
If I were to select one word to associate with this gripping tale, it would be, "engrossing" to the max. One cannot finish a chapter without wanting/needing to continue to the next lest the cliff hanging denouement of events get lost in between. It is an absolute miracle that this author is still alive to tell his story of adversity from childhood to adult life. The philosophical aspects of the absurdity of war, and the thought provoking challenge of predestination vis a vis free will, sets a mental challenge for the reader to re-explore his thoughts and beliefs on both topics. The reader is also inspired to further explore the history of Korea, especially when the author relates his family tree connection to the early king and queen of the nation that has become modern day Korea. The writing style is concise and flowing so that the reader becomes deeply engrossed "from his loving heart." A five star read.

Format: Paperback
As a high school student in the late 1950's, I stumbled upon a copy of All Quiet on the Western Front - Remarque's tale of Paul Bäumer, a young German student who, by virtue of historical circumstance, is caught up in the tragedy of modern warfare.
As a young student growing up in an era when my father's generation had claimed victory in WWII and who's older brothers and cousins had recently returned from the more ambiguous conclusion of the Korean War, Remarque's novel was a shock to my adolescent system. Exposure to popular films and the zeitgeist of the post WWII years in America, provided me and my peers with a view of warfare as a romantic and heroic adventure, an ennobling experience that elevates its participants to true manhood and patriotic purpose. Remarque's description of horses stumbling over their battle ravaged intestines and simple well intentioned young men being reduced to cannon fodder did, indeed, give me serious and lasting pause for reflection regarding the nature of war.
Won Moo Hurh's I Will Shoot Them With My Loving Heart parallels Remarque's powerful presentation. Hurh provides a new generation of young Americans a compelling reason to pause and reflect upon the futile tragedy of modern warfare. The Korean War, often neglected in our literature and film, is told from a unique perspective, by a young artillary officer who served in the ROK army. Hurh's tale is masterfully told, a gripping story that provides a dynamic counterpoint between the bureaucratic structure of the ROK army and the poignant story of individual soldiers, family members and communities that are disrupted by the tragedy of war.
