THE North Korean Communist attack began a little after four o’clock in the morning on June 25, 1950, less than two miles from my home in Kaesong. I even turned over in bed and tried to go back to sleep. In my two years in Kaesong, I had learned that most such outbreaks of fighting along the 38th parallel took place during the early morning hours.

When the North Koreans captured cities and villages in South Korea in the first months of the Korean War (1950–53), they arrested people they thought were anticommunist.

We homeschool and wanted some good books/biographies about the Korean War. This book is a jewel. It is about a Methodist minister held as a POW for three years by the N. Koreans and Chinese. The author makes you feel like you are right there with him in the POW camps. He incorporates so much knowledge of the country of Korea, geography,politics of the day, and the mind set of the communist N. Korean way of thinking and what happens to POW's physically as well as emotionally. My dad served in N. Korea and I came away from this book with a greater respect for what my dad and his commrades must have witnessed in this "Forgotten War".

It does not have any bad language but his discription of the death march is very real and heartbreaking. We learned more about the Korean War from this book than any textbook out there.

This book tells the truth on how our people suffered and died for not just us but people from other countries. Larry Zellers wife Francis is still living at the age of 91 and is still sharp as a tack. She can recount many stories that will make your hair stand-up as her and her husband traveled around the world to many countries sharing their faith and love. God Bless them both

What every person should know about what happened on the forgotten death march. A vividly told story fo the forgotten war that is still going on. If you want to know how it really is in North Korea, here is a first hand account. Hard to lay down, but never to be forgotten.

The way our prisoners and civilians were treated after their capture was inhuman to say the least. At least those that survived could tell what had happened to them and were fortunate they lived through it. It just does"t seem right that the public knows so little of this. This happened to real people that suffered and died

anyone who doubts the brutality of the north Korean regime would do well to read this true horror story. as they march elderly women and wounded in the winter time to a prison camp and shoot those who cant keep walking, it makes me really mad. its all true and shows the hideous cruelty of the north Korean regime. this is the country that is firing off nukes at us. makes you think

I had the privilege of knowing Mr. Zellers through the Methodist church that we both attended in Weatherford, Tx. I had heard through other church members that Larry had written a book about his experience in Korea. I even spoke to him about it in casual conversation stating a desire to read it when I got a chance. He didn't seem to want to talk about the details of it and I didn't press the matter. Unfortunately it was Larry's death that finally prompted me to purchase and read his story.

What an incredible story. It was hard to understand how the gentle elderly man that I knew could have ever possibly survived the horrors that he describes in his book. Larry was one of the very first prisoners of the Korean war and was held captive for the duration. He witnessed many atrocities as well as survived many himself. Larry doesn't emphasize his faith in this book as much as one might expect, but it is obvious that it was his faith in God that carried him through. I believe that the following quote from the book summarizes Larry's faith and his struggles with the reality of his situation.

"I had seen the first of many American soldiers to drop out that day because they could not keep up with the grueling pace through the snow. For a moment the realization that these young men would soon be in the presence of God filled me with awe and almost succeded in converting this barbaric scene into one of tranquillity. Then I was brought back to reality: someone was dying -- someone was responsible for this outrage."

Very well written. I opened the book to the middle to just see what I'd purchased and couldn't put it down for several pages. Painfully detailed account of the death march.
Great book on a little reported subject-POW life during the Korean War. Mr. Zellers does an awesome job conveying the fears and hopes of POWs during that time. You can viscerally feel their fear through his writing. I highly recommend this moving book to anyone with even a passing interest for Korean War history.
