Baited Trap, The Ambush of Mission 1890 tells the story for the first time of perhaps the most dangerous Korean War rescue mission in compelling detail gleaned from formerly classified official records, first person accounts, and family documents long unknown. After more than fifty years, the riveting story of the Korean War's most heroic-and costly-rescue can now be told. It took declassification of official records, extensive research, tracking down the scattered families of brave airmen, and use of the Freedom of Information Act, to piece together the story of what five incredibly determined Air Force and Navy pilots did that long June afternoon in the infamous "Iron Triangle." Never before has a formerly classified combat mission been so carefully dissected and examined from the standpoint of those who flew the mission, starting with their complete life stories and those of the women they loved. Several hundred photographs from personal scrapbooks and official records, never before published, illustrate the people and their lives with unique imagery. Baited Trap illustrates and shares through the photographs and words of those who lived it the human costs of any military mission that results in death or injury-a cost that the affected families continue to bear to this day. The mission itself is hair-raising, the result devastating, yet from the ashes of the lives given so valiantly comes a compelling love story that offers hope for us all.
