- Never-before-told stories of secret Korean War operations.
They were unknown soldiers fighting unknown battles in a forgotten war. Their covert missions annihilated communist forces. For the first time, the details of this top secret army operation code named "8240" have been declassified, revealing some of the greatest tales of the Korean War.
Four Army Rangers and 20 South Koreans accept a classified mission to destroy rail lines far behind enemy lines. The mission started badly as brutally cold temperatures and poor planning conspired against them. It would end with casualties and a daring helicopter rescue under heavy fire. But the "White Tigers" had victories as well--spurred by their ferocious fighting style. In one intrepid raid they demolished a top Communist fortress. History never fully honored the bravery of these soldiers who paved the way for US special forces today... until now.
