A very disturbing but true story of America's war in Korea! A compilation of many stories from American POWs and their brutal treatment at the hands of the communist N. Koreans. Their stories should be heard by all Americans! ( )

The term "HERO" is often debated and misused. Those who fit the term are reluctant to accept it. In fact, they are the first to tell you they don't qualify. Readers of They Came Home: Sunchon Tunnel Massacre Survivors by Joyce Faulkner and Pat McGrath Avery will find the story of the survivors of the Sunchon Tunnel Massacre a profoundly moving account of seven men who fit every portion of the definition of hero. I've been fortunate to meet five of them and found it a deeply moving experience.

Sunchon Tunnel Massacre Survivors is a true story of events during the Korean War. Avery and Faulkner conducted painstaking research. Both women interviewed survivors, survivor's families and worked with the United States Department of Defense to assure accuracy in its telling. Faulkner creatively weaves together the soldiers' stories in a modern-day form of Greek tragedy using the men's individual stories as a chorus. The impact is tremendous. These two writers have uncovered vital information.

This book should be in every school and college library. It should be mandatory reading material in every history classroom in the nation. Pat McGrath Avery and Joyce Faulkner have done this country a great service by telling this mostly forgotten story of incredible heroism, comradeship and survival during the Korean War. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978515811, Paperback)

In the early days of the Korean War, 450+ American prisoners were marched from Taejon, South Korea, to Seoul, then on to Pyongyang, North Korea. There they boarded a train. On October 19, the train pulled into a tunnel. The North Korean guards unloaded the prisoners, a few at a time, and executed them. Eight of the known survivors tell their story.
