This website with an incongruous name has the purpose of publicizing the long-hidden history of Americans in the city that today is the capital of North Korea. In early 2017, after the fortuitous discovery of part of the story and years of tracking down forgotten records and surviving individuals, I published two books about the subject: Project Eagle: The American Christians of North Korea in World War II, a history of the American presence in Korea before World War II and the wartime combined intelligence operation that grew out of it, and American Pyongyang: The American Christian Community of the North Korean Capital, 1895-1942, a photographic history of the American community of Pyongyang using some of the hundreds of period photos that I could not use in Project Eagle. Books being limited in how many people they can reach, and having far more material to relate and no place to publish all of it, I decided to start this blog.
Project Eagle: The American Christians of North Korea in World War II, published by Potomac Books, an imprint of the University of Nebraska Press, is available as a hardcover book or on Kindle. It is available for purchase on Amazon and in bookstores.
American Pyongyang: The American Christian Community of the North Korean Capital, 1895-1942, self-published on Amazon Createspace, is available for purchase only on Amazon, at:
