Synopsis: Admiral Yi, arguably the greatest naval commander in all of history, defeats the mighty samurai of Japan, the most feared warriors in Asia, in a series of masterful battles at sea during the Imjin War, 1592-1598. He uses the Kobukson, the iron-plated battleships armed with cannon he designed.
The Korean Priest Wonho , a 16th century Buddhist traveler and scholar, having journeyed to and learned the languages of China and Japan, becomes an aide to, and ultimately a spy, a fighter, and then a warrior for Korea’s ultimate hero, Admiral Yi Sun-sin.
Admiral Yi was a benefactor of the poor, a loyal son, an excellent father, a renowned scholar, a superb athlete, and a champion archer. This work of historic fiction is an epic tale of intrigue, sabotage, espionage, lust, betrayal, and war between Korea and China against Japan come to life.
“Admiral Yi is the ultimate Korean hero and might just be the best admiral of all time.”
—George Brooks, UCSCA
