The book suffers from rather poor editing, however, as another reviewer has already stated. But that is forgivable. Bermudez is the unofficial encyclopedia of North Korea's military and security forces. His writing for Jane's Intelligence and his other published books make him a scholar with value.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in the DPRK.
His pencil and ink drawings of trout are unparalleled. What precision, attention to detail and vivid color! The fish jumped off the page (so to speak).
Rarely have I seen more spectacular renderings of any fish. These are drawings I'd gladly frame and hang them in my home.

Some of the pictures include the names of the people shown in the picture. All pictures include the story behind the picture. In some cases the story is lengthly and full of lots of anecdotes. For instance, Door County had a toll bridge from 1887 to 1931. The Leonhardt Music Hall was opened as an opera house in 1900.
The pictures are from many sources, mostly private people so there are pictures that would not normally be available. This adds a special flavor to the book.
If your ancestors came to Door County and you are wandering what their life was like, this is the book to find the answers. By way of the write up given with each picture you will be able to learn a great deal about the people and the place.

This is a very human story. The tales of the incredible bravery and sacrifice of these warriors is mixed with stories of trouble-making and skirt-chasing. This is not a Hollywod-style, idealized adventure, but a true story of young men who served their country under incredibly difficult conditions and who enjoyed life whenever they got the chance.
Be sure to read all the way to the end for the author's very funny tale of his trip stateside after the completion of this missions.

There is four sections, the Northeast, the Southeast, the Southwest, and the Northwest. In these sections there is different short stories about the tales of that section like , "Turkey Girl"from the southwest section.
My favorite short storie is "The Girl Who Married the Moon". I like it because it has two people together, but one the moon in this case the moon is always working, but in the end they worked there problem out. I really liked this book.
