In Korea between 1945 and 1953, many radical choices were made to stabilize the political situation. The first president, Syngman Rhee, used extreme measures to secure his power by removing any opposition, communists or non-communists. Estimates as high as 300,000 people were falsely accused, imprisoned, and executed. They were taken to hills and mountains, shot, and dumped in ditches. Two of my grand uncles were victims of being falsely accused and executed. This book is about the mass killings of innocent people during the tragic time in Korea.--(cf. George A.
