Inhaltsangabe: This is the story of a man, like Forest Gump from Alabama, who, after being chased by shotgun toting guards in a scenic area of Seoul, Korea, reminiscences about his first tour in the Army and Korea and greater adventure. This is a sometimes humorous, sometimes silly and sometimes a thriller that keeps you constantly on the edge of your seat. Follow the adventures of Alabama Slim as you are taken through a series of strange and hilarious stories: * He is captured by the North Koreans, taken through a tunnel to the North and tortured. * He is rescued by the Chinese, who turn him over to a secret diplomatic mission from the United States. * He is trained in a bizarre fashion by a very strange, old Korean man who constantly ambushes him. * He acts as a bait to capture the very squad who had taken him before, resulting in their capture, ending abductions. * He meets with the Chinese in the middle of the East China Sea, who give him a message for President Nixon. This is a story as ridiculous as it is funny, but keeps you wondering, could it be true?
