    There is a movie out about it now called My Way it is pretty good a little bit of inaccuracy but it portrays a story that is not well known.

    My Way was a real good movie I thought. A lot of good war movies coming out of Korea lately. Considering all the men who didn't make it through in one army, this guy fought in three, with work camps in between...

    It is amazing how he survived the war, I would like to find out more of the true story as well.

    Your welcome Dave hope you enjoy the movie if you watch it. If you do look for the mg42 in Stalingrad, isn't it to early for them?

    Will do Ben,the mg34 was still the issued belt fed mg in late 42 I believe.
    I tend to notice such thing's in movies myself.I was watching Stalingrad again the other day and noticed one of the soldats carrying a PPSh 41 with no drum mag through the rubble,next scene the drum was back on the weapon.
    Good old Hollywood.
    Cheers

    After I watched the movie I tried to find information on him, but all the sources I found had about this much to say about it:

    "The name of the soldier in this photo is Kyoungjong Yang who was born in Shin Euijoo, Northwestern Korea on March 3, 1920. He was conscripted to the Kwantung army in 1938 and captured by the Soviets in Nomonhan and captured again by Germans in Ukraine in the summer of 1943, maybe in the battle of Kharkov, and captured finally by Americans in Utah beach, Normandy on June 6, 1944.

    He was freed from a POW camp in Britain on May, 1945 and moved and settled in America in 1947. He lived near the Northwestern Univ. in Illinois until he died on April 7, 1992. He lived as an ordinary US citizen without telling his unbelievable life story even to his two sons and one daughter"

    There probably is more information on him in Korean, though.
