The story of American heroes kept by our country's enemies and Washington's failure to recover them reads like a cross between The Manchurian Candidate and Foreign Affairs. It uncovers decades of secrets and incompetence, right up to the Obama Administration, and reveals how Moscow, Beijing, and Pyongyang continue to thwart America today. Filled with previously secret documents and photos. Based on years of research around the world by an investigative historian and former Special Forces officer teamed with the POW/MIA expert son of a missing Korean War flyer, it is by turns both enthralling and upsetting. This book rips the lid off the one of the most disturbing scandals in modern US history.

Wall Street Journal: Independent researcher Mark Sauter and John Zimmerlee, the son of a missing-in-action U.S. Air Force serviceman, argue in a new e-book, that U.S. incompetence, combined with a desire to downplay the issue amid on-again-off-again negotiations with North Korea, have trumped the military's 'no man left behind' imperative. The two men also say that there is some evidence that American soldiers may still be alive in North Korea today... Associated Press: Mark Sauter, a private researcher and co-author with John Zimmerlee of 'American Trophies and Washington's Cynical Attitude,' an e-book about POWs to be published this month, found in government archives a U.S. intelligence report from August 1955, two years after the war, calling for a bigger intelligence effort to learn about such POW transfers.
