This is an interesting biography of Donald Nichols, who started life with a seventh grade education and rose to become an Air Force major, advisor to high-ranking Korean officials, and a spymaster who contributed to the success of the defense of South Korea during the Korean War. He was also a witness to mass executions and a convicted pedophile. Harden tells the story of this complex character who was both a hero and a criminal in a matter-of-fact way; the story of Nichols's life is so strange that is the best way to tell it.
