|About the Book|
This book is a must read for Korea Specialists and foreigners serving or doing business in Korea. It provides valuable insights into the Korean mindset- specifically it highlights the importance of personal relationships as they affect the military, government, and business communities. Equally important and for the first time in English, General Lee tells the story of the first 110 commissioned officers in the Korean Constabulary, the forerunner of the modern Korean Army. These officers played important roles first in establishing the army, next in fighting the Korean War and finally in the building of the modern Korean nation. These men collectively had the greatest impact on Korean society of any single group in the Twentieth Century.
