Very interesting information about activities that were secret and hidden during the Korean War. General Haas reports the events much the same way that he must have written his Army reports during his active duty, but the importance and excitement of the events override the shortcomings of his style. He openly and honestly describes the bungling that often occurs during military operations. That gives a unique flavor to the book.

Good book but not enough about the Navy's effort just before the INCHON landing.

This work is a must for those interested in Military History, especially the history of American Special Operations or in the Korean War. Col. Haas has written an easy to read, exceedinly well researched, well documented book which details the success and failure of special and partisan operations during the Korean War including those of the Central Intelligence Agency. The list of CIA documents alone, which Col. Haas obtained against all odds, makes this book worth obtaining. Without a doubt, it is the best book on Korean War special operations ever published.

of the Korean War. As Mr. Haas notes in his review of his book, the book deals with the operations of the U.S. Army, Air Force, Navy, and CIA. Mr. Haas has done his research and, just as importantly, provided us with a well written book on a subject that has only recently been written about extensively. Along with Dark Moon and White Tigers, this book is a must for Korean War and Korean history fans as wells as those interested in special ops. Highly recommended.

Had an opportunity to listen to a briefing from Col Haas just yesterday. All I can say is he was absolutely fascinating. I have not had the pleasure of reading In the Devil's Shadow, but I am reading another book by Col Haas titled, Apollo's Warriors, a history of Air Force Special Operations during the Cold War. Col Haas is the real deal and loves writing about his special operations brothers. If the Devil's Shadow is a reflection of the author or his other works, then I would recommend it fully.

Very interesting & informative documentary. Gives real perspective to the actual conditions before & during the N. Korean War. Chapter 2 gives a great accounting of Air Force Col. Donald Nichols involvement and amazing achievements before, during & after the war (a True Hero).
