John Fischer's Escape From Korea held my attention throughout. It was difficult to put down until finished. Having served with KMAAG some twelve years later, I am very familiar with the terrain of Korea and of course, the smell of the crop fields. How pilots survived the crash and the march through this almost unflyable country has to be God's will. Fischer's details about his trek through Korea were so vivid that it made me feel like I was there again. This is a story made for a movie.
