Blaine Harden: The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot
The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot tells the riveting story of how Kim Il Sung plunged his country into war against the US, while the youngest fighter pilot in his air force was playing a high-risk game of deception—and escape. Drawing on documents from Chinese and Russian archives, as well as from never before released U.S. intelligence files, Harden gives us a heart-pounding escape adventure and an entirely new way to understand the world's longest-lasting totalitarian state.

Blaine Harden - The Great Leader and the Fighter Pilot: The True Story of the Tyrant Who Created North Korea and The Young Lieutenant Who Stole
In his second foray into the shadowy world of North Korea, Harden, who told the gripping story of a political prisoner’s bid for freedom in Escape from Camp 14, examines Kim Il Sung’s rise to power in the dual context of the support of Mao and Stalin and the defiance of No Kum Sok, a young pilot who, in 1953, risked everything by stealing a Soviet MIG-15 and flying it to South Korea to hand over to the Americans. Harden will be in conversation with Kenneth H. Rowe, formerly a lieutenant of the North Korean Air Force, known as No Kum Sok before he defected. (Viking)
