Descrição do produto
This is the true story of the life of Dr. Edward K Lim. When he flees by horseback to Siberia from the Japanese Kwantung Army in Manchuria, Edward has no inkling his final destination is the jungle smothered islands of the Philippines.
During his lifelong journey, he touches the lives of such notables as Korean patriots, a Chinese Warlord, and Filipino Guerrilla leaders. He even counts Hollywood movie stars among his friends.
Edward survives upheavals in Russia, Germany, China and the American protectorate of the Philippines in his fight to free Korea from Japan. Amid the chaos, he finds fulfilment in a woman’s love.

“The South China Sea Dispute: Philippine Sovereign Rights and Jurisdiction in the West Philippine Sea” writes -
"This is a gripping story of principled patriotism, astonishing family traditions, geopolitics, war, and love spanning Asia, Europe, North America and the Pacific. The hero is a multilingual Korean who studied medicine in Japan, took further medical studies in the U.S, served as doctor in the U.S. Army during World War I and later in the Chinese Kuomintang Army during the Japanese invasion of China, and fought with Filipino guerrillas against Japanese forces in World War II in the Philippines, where he finally settled with his sixth wife. You will not want to put this book down once you start reading it."
