"North Korea is still a threat today with its communist dictator,” he states. “This book gives the history of how and when it all started."

In his military thriller, “Epic in the Forgotten War” (published by Trafford Publishing), Ken Filing crafts a story of honesty, vulnerability and, ultimately, revelation.

In “Epic in the Forgotten War,” readers meet Tony Marino. Tony has reached a crossroads in life. With high school commencement just two weeks away, he is definitely ready to explore the world that lies outside Cleveland. But times are tough in 1949, leaving Tony only one viable option – to join the Navy. As he enlists, he has no idea that the Korean War is about to break out.

An action adventure novel, “Epic in the Forgotten War” is loosely based on real-life events.

“It was inspired by my own experiences in the Korean War,” says Filing. “I was in the U.S. Navy from 1949 to 1954. My ship, the U.S.S. General J. C. Breckinridge, participated in the invasion of Inchon on September 15, 1950 and the evacuation of Hungnam in late December 1950.”

Filing sees his new book not only as a good story, but as a wakeup call. “North Korea is still a threat today with its communist dictator,” he states. “This book gives the history of how and when it all started.”
