The Long Road
to the Sixth ROK

I grew up in South Korea during the politically chaotic period after World War II.

South Korea is known today as Miracle on the Han River, a description of a transformation from a developing country to an industrialized modern country.

What is still tragically obscured is its bloody history–thousands of lives maimed, lost, and displaced during South Korea’s struggle to become a truly democratic civilian government, the Sixth Republic of Korea, THE SIXTH ROK.

This is the personal memoir of my family’s survival during those dark and violent times. The Long Road to the SIXTH ROK is available on Amazon.com in paperback and eBook.
