    It covered the events surrounding an amazing story triumph during wartime, the capacity of the human spirit a true miracle of saving all those people But it was just written so poorly at times difficult to follow and understand, and a bit dull I finished it because I wanted to, but wasn t the most enjoyable read.

  3. Donald says:

    This is the story of the US X Army evacuation of North Korea in December 1950 My wife s grandfather, uncles and aunt were among the 100,000 refugees who fled the Communists, and were part of the sea evacuation While it was truly a Christmas miracle that so many civilians were able to escape, the pain of being separated from other family members, friends and one s homeland still remains today.

  4. Bert says:

    Interesting story from the Korean War about the risk taken trying to save civilians with some impactful stories how families were divided by the conflict This is not a hard history book, reading like a Readers Digest version of a book.

  5. John says:

    Great story, too much repetition, digression and unnecessary information.

  6. Kara says:

    This book was awful The story could have been told in one or two pages but the author dragged it on for 200 pages.

  7. Shelly Saczynski says:

    I couldn t put it down I can t believe I had never even heard of Hungnam and the Meredith Victory before I found this book.
