A novel of the black markets of the South Vietnamese city of Danang during the Vietnam War, based on the author’s experiences as a self-described South Korean mercenary on the side of the South Vietnamese. This is a Vietnam War novel that sees the war from all sides; scenes of battle are well told and the plot is thick with intrigue and complex subplots. Ultimately The Shadow of Arms is a novel of the human condition rather than of the exploits and losses of one side or the other in war.
“An unflinching, ambitious novel.”—San Francisco Chronicle
“Deeply rewarding”—Kirkus Reviews
“A provocative novel...with subtle power.”—Time Magazine
