Description


The Yalu River Boys is the true story of the forgotten men from the Forgotten War. Follow a B-29 bomber crew as it battles Russian MiG-15 fighters in the heart of Mig-Alley during the Korean War. Learn the heartbreaking truth of the communist prison camp gulags, the cruelty of the North Korean enemy, and the propaganda attacks from friend and foe. Marvin King joined the US Air Force in peacetime but soon found himself in the midst of jet age aerial combat, captured and taken into China, and later subjected to the abject horror of a place in North Korea known only as The Caves.
