About this title

Synopsis:

Recent headlines have buffeted us with stories of an imminent threat from the world's newest nuclear power...North Korea. At the same time, the United States is commemorating the 50th anniversary of the armistice that ended the Korean War, a conflict that was one of the bloodiest in our nation's history and is at the root of this new threat. But many are not familiar with the realities of this war that took more than 4 million lives, including over 36,000 Americans, and with the incredible sacrifices of millions of young U.S. soldiers.

Maybe Dying Would Have Been Easier

In Korea’s Sleeping Ghosts, you'll open a time capsule and read words that were written some 40 years ago, but just recently uncovered. The author, Lee Miller, takes you on a remarkable journey through his personal experiences in the war, seen through the eyes of Lieutenant Pete Mullins. Mullins tastes the resentment of being yanked from home to a far off land; endures the hardships and horrors of frontline combat; delights in the insane humor and hilarious camaraderie of battlefield friendships; and grasps at a tantalizing romance that always seems just out of reach. He's forced to overcome paralyzing fear to lead men into battle, and contends with the often-absurd orders coming through the chain of command. You'll travel with Mullins as he learns the truth about himself and the men with whom he's fighting, and in the end comes face-to-face with the harshest reality of all.

About the Author:

Lee Miller was born in Ashland, Ohio in 1926. He served in World War II and was promoted to army staff sergeant at the young age of 19, but the war ended before he was deployed overseas. As a 2nd and 1stlieutenant in the Korean War, he served as a rifle platoon leader in I company, 31st infantry, 8th Army, and fought on the famed Heartbreak Ridge. Bill Mauldin, the famous cartoonist and war correspondent, bunked with him for a time and wrote articles about the platoon. Mr. Miller died in 1992.
