The Cliff Colony: A Short Story (Tales of an Inconvenient War Book #1)
The first installment in an epic new Korean war series. Three Japanese teenagers are orphaned at the Battle of Okinawa in 1945 and survive by joining a shack colony built from scrap materials left over from the battle and from a US Army dump nearby. They live in utter poverty at the best of times. When begging and stealing are no longer enough to support them they turn to living with US servicemen.
