In 1871, war-photographer Felice Beato, accompanies the United States Asiatic Fleet’s expedition to invade Korea. Political and Ethical conflicts arise between the Fleet’s Admiral and Washington’s Minister-to-Asia which threaten the outcome of the expedition’s goals. En Route Beato is blackmailed by a ranking member of the expedition over Beato’s homosexual past. Intrigue is heightened as the reigning Korean Regent experiences dissent within his court. Skirmishes with Korean forces result in a desperate battle and, in essence, the expedition is an utter failure.
This is a TRUE STORY that combines historical facts with compelling fiction that will charge readers to re-examine the U.S. policy of Manifest Destiny.
