King of Spies

Several years ago I discovered the book Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden – he documented the life of the young man Shin Dong-hyuk who had made the daring escape from North Korea to the West via China. Shin had the incredibly difficult task of adjusting to free life after enduring a lack of societal kinship and bonds in the labour camps. Blaine has now released his new book and again the focus of topic is Korea. US Air Force Commander Donald Nichols was instrumental in Korea, winning medals for strategy and valour throughout a long career based in this complex international zone. Nichols was a spymaster and creator of a special operations team to keep a watchful eye on a danger zone and to monitor (and deal with) threats to the USA. Blaine has used his investigative skills and has meticulously sifted through old classified government records, court documents and interviews, in both Korea and USA, to put together this comprehensive story of a remarkable ‘kingmaker’ in the world of espionage. He has also uncovered the blurred lines of morality and law and why the US government suddenly closed down such a revered commander.
A highly readable non-fiction book in an intriguing part of the world that very little has been written about. Blaine comes with the credentials to write authentically about a zone that seems to be an ever increasing topic on our nightly news.
