- Jenkins vanished from South Korea in 1965
- For years he lived in a bare one-room hut with three other Americans
- He and his wife were happily united in their hatred of the regime, he says
- Jenkins, seeking leniency from the U.S. Army, is offering details on North Korean espionage

All I want to do is clear myself with the American army.
