Overview

A fantastic war story set in the Sino-Korean allied expeditions against Russians during the Sino-Russian border conflicts of 1654 that eventually takes the stage into space.

Book Intro

This is the third full-length novel by Chung Bora, who has garnered attention by translating Russian and other Slavic masterpieces and even creating her own sci-fi fantasy works.

Chung was inspired by the soldiers of the Sino-Korean allied expeditions against Russians in the 17th century, who were mobilized as cannon fodder under the Qing dynasty but miraculously defeated the Russians and eventually returned home. The tale expands its stage into space and is woven into a fantastic war story.

From the author's point of view, the turbulent times are always the times in which we live, and the heroes are not the leaders who command thousands of troops but rather the brave ordinary men who jump into endless battles and never leave the side of their fellow man. These are the people about whom Chung wanted to write.

Chung dedicates this beautiful story of war to "the comrades who endure endless battles for human dignity and rights."
