A Mutiny, or Revolution
This chapter returns to the site of the largest US- and UN-run POW camp during the war to go behind the barbed wire fence to follow the event that squarely placed the POW controversy onto the global media map: the kidnapping of US camp commander Brigadier General Francis Dodd on May 7, 1952, by a group of mostly Korean Communist prisoners of war. The Dodd kidnapping revealed how the Korean War was a conflict that the Geneva Conventions had not anticipate. Questions about sovereignty, diplomacy, and international humanitarian law come to the fore as the chapter places the United Nations Command (UNC) camp on Koje Island in the same frame as the negotiating table at Panmunjom.
