Spy Ship: The Capture of the USS Pueblo

The forgotten story of the capture of the American spy ship USS Pueblo and its crew; captured, tortured and held prisoner for 11 months by North Korean forces fifty years ago.

It was a brazen and violent attack by North Korean forces on an American ship sailing in international waters, leading to the death of one sailor and the imprisonment of the remaining 82 crewmen who were confined and tortured for 11 long months. Yet the capture of the spy ship the USS Pueblo, the only active-duty vessel of the US Navy still held captive by a foreign government, remains a largely forgotten chapter in American naval history.
