      Hope in Hungnam takes place during the darkest and coldest days of the Korean War. The year was 1950. In fact, it was 62 years ago this week that the events described in this book unfolded. The setting is the brutal Battle of Chosin Reservoir and the interwoven story of one of the victory ships voyage and the story of one Korean father and son who flee the oncoming Chinese. It culminates in the stunning Christmas Eve evacuation of approximately 100,000 civilians from the port at Hungnam, North K [...]

      I thought this book was awesome! I had never heard anything about the Chosin Resevoir or the SS Meredith Victory and the amazing rescue that this ship and its crew were able to accomplish. The historical facts were relayed in a manner that was interesting, I never once got bored with this book like a do a lot of other historical books that center around a historical event. I thought this was a truly moving book that hits intellectually and emotionally. The love story that was played out in the b [...]

      I received a copy of this book from a GoodReads giveaway. The book me was something a little bit more than just a quick read so I was very happy to be chosen as a recipient. My grandfather served in the Korean war. He was shot and wounded while helping another wounded solider and was suppose to receive a purple heart. He never has though we have fought and fought for them to give him the recognition he deserves. He refuses to talk about his time over there so I know very little about what he has [...]

      I just finished a trip backward in time to the Korean War. What a harrowing experience!The bravery and compassion that was detailed in Hope in Hungnam certainly was never hinted at in my history classes fact the Korean War was just glossed over!I was just a small child when my Uncle was sent to the Korean War and it wasn't until I met my husband, who was part of the peace time troops in Korea during the mid 1960s, that I really became aware that there were many stories to be read and heard comin [...]

      I have received this book from ! This book was really good and actually made me feel like I was there, it was so realistic! This book definitely shows that there was a lot of effort put into it with very realistic opinions of politics and wars as well as very realistic characters and very vivid descriptions of the places.

      I had the privilege of editing this book from an earlier draft to completion. David has done his research and brought an incredible, forgotten story to life again. In a dark world, some stories shine bright--the true tale of the Meredith Victory, woven with the fictional story of a soldier who learns to leave bitterness behind for the sake of love, is one of them.

    11. Kate Joyce on said:

      This is a great read. I was born in Aug of 1950 and knew very little about the Korean war. David wrote about history in a way that was engaging, entertaining but knowledgeable. The mix between a great love story and the horrors of war kept me up past my bedtime on a work night.

      This is the story of the SS Meredith Victoria, a historical fact worth knowing. It is a novel about the Korean War and the rescue of North Korean refugees by this cargo ship. The main character is the US Marine private called Jack Stiles. His personal battle to find a reason to do his duty and his questions about the US involvement in a "civil war of animals". His transformation and empathy to a different race is moving. The author does a great job by describing the terrible conditions these peo [...]

      The narrative portions if this book are well written but the dialogue is atrocious. Did people really say "What's up?" in the 1950s? I don't know but do not think so. The dialogue is largely laughable or so lofty as to be unbelievable. It really disrupted the flow of an otherwise well written work.

    16. Jonathan Reskof on said:

      HopeThis book was a tribute to maintaining humanity in the midst of brutal inhumanity. It paid homage to the sacrifices made by many to help total strangers in need half way around the world.
