Summary note
Yi T'ae, a war correspondent, joins the North Korean partisans in 1950. But he soon feels torn by the partisan's activities and his own passivity. When Operation Ch'ŏng-ryong fails, Yi T'ae and his men find themselves on the run from the punitive forces. Injured while on the run, Yi T'ae is taken care of by Pak Min-ja and they soon fall in love. But when he is called back to duty, they are forced to go their separate ways. As the winter weather worsens, Yi T'ae and his men fight in the battle of Yakdam Peak and there he meets the poet Kim Yŏng. They discuss the futility of fighting one's own people. The North Korean partisans in South Korea are cornered in the hills of Mt. Chiri and there he meets the legendary Commander Yi Hyŏn-sang. He is also astonished by Kim Hŭi-suk's courage. From this point on, he becomes an official member of the political party of the partisans. When news of a truce is heard, the members are thrown into turmoil. Hunger and harsh weather drive them to destitution and during the last battle, Yi T'ae is taken prisoner by the punitive forces. His long battle for the partisans comes to a close.
