Tattoos by Jimmy Wong — A work of art in progress
Reviews“Bobby Washkowiak battles his way through the bitter first winter of the Korean War, longing for home. Fifty years later, his son and grandson come across the wartime letters from the father and grandfather they never knew and learn what happen to him on one of the battlefields of that “forgotten war.” In this emotional tour de force, Jeffrey Miller vividly recreates the horrors of combat and the yearning for closure experienced by millions of soldiers and their families.” - Michael Breen, author of Kim Jong-Il: North Korea's Dear Leader and The Koreans: Who They Are, What They Want, Where their Future Lies.
