Escape From Korea
Just the act of flying in the military can be a dangerous job, especially during a night carrier landing in rain and fog. When combat missions are added to the mix, casualties are a certainty and not all the casualties are on the battlefield. I was one of the lucky ones. I came back home relatively unscarred physically or emotionally. However, not all of my fellow airmen were so fortunate.
By John J. Fischer with James V. Lee
John Fischer's Escape From Korea held my
attention throughout. It was difficult to put
down until finished. Having served with
KMAAG some twelve years later, I am very
familiar with the terrain of Korea and of
course, the smell of the crop fields. How
pilots survived the crash and the march
through this almost unflyable country has
to be God's will. Fischer's details about his
trek through Korea were so vivid that it
made me feel like I was there again. This is
a story made for a movie.
Lt. Col. USAF (Ret)
For those who admire America's warriors, John
Fischer has it just right in Escape from Korea.
This accurate chronicle of courage,
perseverance and daring under the most adverse circumstances is absolutely riveting.
