The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) separates North and South Korea and is the most defended border in the world.

˃˃˃ READ ABOUT THE DANGEROUS JOB OF OUR SOLDIERS IN KOREA ON THE DMZ!

The soldiers were responsible for enforcing the armistice agreement that ended the Korean War. The North Koreans violated it almost daily sending spies, marauders, hit squads, and ambush patrols into the southern controlled portion of the DMZ in their never-ending effort to destabilize South Korea and cause its collapse. Their blatant violations of the agreement has left a bloody trail of dead bodies that includes many American soldiers. This book takes the reader on a journey through the history of the Cold War and the defense of the DMZ from the perspective of nine American veterans, and eleven tours, who served in different capacities in South Korea from 1962 through 1991.

Bob is the author of the award-winning series We Were Soldiers Too. We Were Soldiers Too is a Cold War documentary series that tells the history of the Cold War from the perspective of the veterans who served during this critical time in history.

Just finished Korea book. I've read over a hundred WWll, Korea and Vietnam books. This one I would rate in the top ten in non-fiction. Having served in an 8" SP howitzer unit three miles from the Imjim, I can pretty much identify with those who told their stories.

I do wish the pictures were larger or zoomable, a feature not available on the Kindle Fire.

I have really enjoyed all three and looking forward to the next installment.


Having served in Korea I would like to thank the Author, He has Placed First hand accounts of DMZ service from many different periods in brilliant context, The shear terror of Night Ambush Patrols , The unmarked minefields and the sudden unexpected exchanges of fire between opposing Guard posts along with extreme climate. Soldiers trained to a fine edge Like a coiled spring longing for release yet dreading it as well combined with actual contact with the enemy, go along way towards explaining why over 40 % of our Cold war Vets are disabled. Thank you Bob Kern for a well written account of our service. Tomahawk Sir.
