When North Korea once again invades the South, the U.S. responds with a light infantry division; Ruggero focuses on a rifle company's deployment, initial patrols, rear-guard action and climactic final air assault. "While the characters are adequate for the novel's purpose, this military procedural emphasizes doctrine, training and weapons," said PW.

Readers who enjoy the school of military realism/suspense found in novels by Tom Clancy and Stephen Coonts should welcome this first novel set in today's Korea. The code "38 North Yankee" means that the North Korean People's Army has crossed into the demilitarized zone to invade South Korea and that American units are to engage them. Sent to counter this military adventurism, Captain Mark Isen and his men of C Company, 25th Light Infantry Division, move from Schofield barracks in Oahu to hostilities in Korea. What follows is a realistic account of men in difficult battle situations, as Isen tries to keep enemy forces contained until U.S. reinforcements arrive. Recommended for popular fiction collections. Previewed in Prepub Alert, LJ 3/1/90.- William C. McCully, Park Ridge P.L., Ill.
