Sometimes one family saga intertwines with the larger events of history. That's the case here, as challenges unfold for one young couple amid post-WW2 Europe and later Korea. Fascinating on both levels—how people survive oppression, how countries evolve, how politics infects even the smallest aspects of a citizen's life.

And the secrets. There are many. Especially for Hill 433 in Korea.

“What you did up on that hill was remarkable," an officer later tells a soldier. "I'm sorry that it cannot be told. It will be buried where such secrets belong. My advice is to forget what happened. You were never here.”

Very difficult to put down. Highly recommend.

I had no idea we used this radar in Korea! I felt so drawn into this book! I couldn't put it down! The action was nail biting, I felt as though I was there! Well done! If you like Tom Clancy or WEB Griffin you will thoroughly enjoy this story! I know I did!
