The place lived up to the description, although some things had changed. His escorts now included women officers, and Seoul was a mass of skyscrapers rather than of rubble.

With consummate skill James Brady summons up the past and illuminates the present, be it the Korea of "the forgotten war", the Yanks who fought there long ago or today's soldiers standing wary sentinel over "the scariest place in the world". The result is uplifting, inspiring, often heart-breaking, and this new Brady memoir proves as powerful as his first.

The Scariest Place in the World: A Marine Returns to North Korea. James Winston Brady was an American celebrity columnist who created the Page Six gossip column in the New York Post and authored the In Step With column in Parade for nearly 25 years until his death. 0641779747 (ISBN13: 9780641779749). He also authored numerous books about his time serving in the United States Marine Corps during the Korean War. Brady was born in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

Eddie scored some great shots, and I got a cover story that later became a book, The Scariest Place in the World: A Marine Returns to North Korea, the title deriving from a presidential quote. Bill Clinton, who knew nothing of war, once got it precisely right when, on a visit to the Korean demilitarized zone, he gazed northward and intoned, "This is the scariest place in the world. We kicked off in Seoul, where . Army four-star Gen. Leon LaPorte and South Korean Chief of Staff General Nam briefed us.

The world’s scariest place. BILL Clinton, who knew little of soldiering, got it exactly right once about Korea, calling its DMZ (demilitarized zone) the scariest place in the world. Year after year, as entire decades go by, and its veterans age and die off, Korea remains the forgotten war, a neglected if savage incident overshadowed by that great event of the century, World War II, and by Vietnam, no more deadly than Korea, but longer-lasting and, at home, darker and more bitterly divisive.

This book is dedicated to the late Senator John Chafee of Rhode Island, the captain of Dog Company, and to the men I first wrote about ten years ago in ]. And to all the Marines and other Americans who fought in the Korean War. It is also for my daughters, Fiona and Susan. It is also for my daughters, Fiona and Susan, and for my grandchildren, Sarah, Joe, and Nick Konig, so they will know something about my friends, living and dead, who fought in Korea. And for the great Eddie Adams, with whom I traveled back in time. Disambiguation notice.

Half a century after he fought there as a young lieutenant of Marines, James Brady returns to the brooding Korean ridgelines and mountains to sound Taps for a generation. It's been 15 years since Brady first wrote of Korea in The Coldest War, drawing raves from Walter Cronkite and The New York Times, which called it "a superb personal memoir of the way it was."
In the spring of 2003 Brady and Pulitzer-winning combat photographer Eddie Adams, a couple of old Marines, "gentlemen rankers off on a spree," flew in Black Hawk choppers and trekked the Demilitarized Zone where it meanders into North Korea, interviewing four-star generals and bunking in with tough U.S. Recon troops, in Brady's words, "raw meat on the point of a sharpened stick." The two Marine veterans bond with this handful of youthful GIs confronting the loopy and nuclear saber-rattling North, in a contemporary Korea which just might become the war we have to fight next. Brady recalls that first time on bloody Hill 749, the men who died there, what happened to the Marines who lived to make it home, and experiences yet again the emotional pull of a lifelong love affair with the Corps in which they all served.
With consummate skill James Brady summons up the past and illuminates the present, be it the Korea of "the forgotten war", the Yanks who fought there long ago or today's soldiers standing wary sentinel over "the scariest place in the world". The result is uplifting, inspiring, often heart-breaking, and this new Brady memoir proves as powerful as his first.
