Summary
"On a frigid January [1968] morning, while eavesdropping near the port of Wonsan, the [American spy ship] Pueblo was challenged by a North Korean gunboat. When [crew leader Pete] Bucher tried to escape, his ship was quickly surrounded by more patrol boats, shelled and machine-gunned, and forced to surrender ... Less than forty-eight hours before the Pueblo's capture, North Korean commandos had nearly succeeded in assassinating South Korea's president in Seoul. Together, the two explosive incidents pushed Cold War tensions toward a flashpoint as both North and South Korea girded for war--with fifty thousand American soldiers caught between them"--Dust jacket flap
