This firsthand account of jungle warfare was written by a top military expert on the subject who draws from his own experiences fighting in Southeast Asia. A former officer in the Gurkha regiment of the British army, with unrivaled knowledge of jungle fighting techniques, Cross cites examples from both the British and Japanese sides during World War II and goes onto demonstrate how tactics and strategy evolved in later campaigns in the Malay, Borneo, Indo-China and Vietnam theaters. First published in hardcover in 1989 and out of print for years, the book is now available for the first time in paperback.
