Jenkins talks to Scott Pelley about the abuse he suffered in North Korea and about his wife of 22 years, Hitomi Soga, whom he married while in North Korea. She is a Japanese woman who had been kidnapped by North Korea and forced to teach Japanese to North Korean spies."--Container

The reluctant communist : my desertion, court-martial, and forty-year imprisonment in North Korea by Charles Robert Jenkins( Book )

2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Czech and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In January of 1965, 24-year-old U.S. Army sergeant Charles Robert Jenkins abandoned his post in South Korea, walked across the DMZ, and surrendered to communist North Korean soldiers standing sentry along the world's most heavily militarized border. He believed his action would get him swapped in a prisoner exchange, sent back to the States and a short jail sentence. Instead he found himself in another sort of prison, where for forty years he suffered under one of the most brutal and repressive regimes the world has known. This fast-paced, harrowing tale, told plainly and simply by Jenkins (with journalist Jim Frederick), takes the reader behind the North Korean curtain and reveals the inner workings of its isolated society while offering a powerful testament to the human spirit.--From publisher description
