Description
 
A true account of Navy Commander Franklin Clark and the covert mission that helped change the course of the Korean War. In late Aug. 1950, with N. Korea on the attack, Gen. MacArthur battled his own colleagues over his plan to invade Inchon. They knew too little about the dangerous tides, seawalls, and fortifications. It was suicide, they said. MacArthur convinced them, and then brought in Clark, because they were right: they did know too little. With two S. Korean officers, Clark landed on a harbor island and set to work, but the N. Koreans discovered him, and soon he was involved with firefights, night raids, and hand-to-hand combat. It all culminated on the night of the invasion -- when he and his men took over a lighthouse to guide the allied fleet. B&W photos.
