About This Book
This is the first complete Korean edition, translated from Chinese language
(originally written by Admiral Yi) into Korean.
In "NANJUNG ILGI: War Diary of Admiral Yi Sun-sin" one can see revelation and performance of this spirit. It portrays the Admiral's camp life, his counter-attacks against Hideyoshi's unjustifiable invasion, giving the enemy a crushing defeat so as to force him to beg for peace. The Admiral held the command of the sea in his hands until his noble death at the hour of his final victory. It reflects his admirable personality and super-human tactics; his Kobukson (Turtle Ship) and other weapons of his ingenuity proved to be death messengers to the enemy. His wonderful military feats outshine those of Nelson, Drake or Jean Bart. The great Korean Commander in the late sixteenth century is the model of all patriots defending their countries against alien aggressors in any part of the world. With his literary skill the picturesque accounts of the battles in the war of 1592-98 in addition to his military life are superbly depicted in this book.
