THE AUTHOR WAS VERY EXPLICIT & PRECISE WHEN DESCRIBING THE PEOPLE, THE PLACES AND THE EVENTS WITH-IN HIS NOVEL OF THE KOREAN WAR.
I COULD FEEL THE PAIN,THE FEAR, THE ATROCITIES SUFFERED IN THE HORRIBLE, RANCID CONDITIONS OF THE POW COMPOUNDS. THE DEVASTATING PAIN THAT FAMILIES AND FRIENDS HAD TO ENDURE NOT KNOWING THE WHEREABOUTS OF THEIR LOVED ONES MISSING IN ACTION. NOT HAVING ANY CLOSURE,.. WITH THE FAMILY OF THE MIA VICTIM BEING THE KEY TOPIC OF THIS NOVEL.
THIS NOVEL OPENED MY EYES AND GAVE ME A IN-DEPTH UNDERSTANDING OF HOW MUCH THE POST WAR TRAUMA CONTINUES TO EFFECT THEIR EVERYDAY LIVES AND CONTINUE TO SUFFER INDEFINITELY. ALONG A SYSTEM OF FLAWS, UNTRUTHS AND UNSCRUPULOUS SITUATIONS.
