Shadow Warriors The Covert War in Korea Behind the open combat waged during the Korean War another ferocious conflict raged: an invisible war fought with secret missions, guerrilla operations, and endless propaganda. The political stakes were high—as were the risks assumed by those involved. Now, for the first time, the extraordinary story of the underground intrigues, strategies, and alliances of the Korean War is told in full. Drawing on interviews with actual participants, this action-packed account reveals surprising new information about the war’s covert maneuvers, including a fascinating and detailed examination of the super-secret Joint Services Operation (JSO), the organization that directed all U.S. intelligence and counterintelligence agencies. From Washington to Moscow, Peking to Pyongyang, this riveting, behind-the-scenes look at the events, decisions, and personality clashes in the United Nations and Communist high commands is military history at its most dramatic. Such legendary figures as Truman, MacArthur, Marshall, and Stalin share the stage with adventurous soldiers, sailors, and government operatives. And caught in the middle of the superpower struggle are thousands of Korean civilians. Many would take flight as refugees, while many would find ready employment as spies for either side—or both. With his characteristic flair for dynamic storytelling and detail, William Breuer once again proves himself a master military historian. In Shadow Warriors, the acclaimed author is in top form, training his veteran’s eye on a vivid and previously unexplored—chapter from our not-too-distant past.
