honor and duty.
The Korean War was the bloodiest in American history, next to the American Civil War.
Lieutenant Al Houer and Corporal William B. Booth found themselves in the middle of the conflict, working for the military intelligence
community and the fledgling CIA in 1950.
Their initial combat assignment was backup for Naval Lieutenant

the War in South East Asia, I salute the Korean Combat Veteran.
I have tried to make this novel historically
