In this first-hand account of clandestine operations against the Japanese in South-East Asia, Terence O'Brien describes how in his opinion these campaigns were, in the main, a waste of life and resources. He believes that the competitiveness and isolation of the different outfits led to unnecessary duplication of long, perilous flights. Fierce tropical storms and hazardous terrain further compounded the difficulties of making contact with the SOE and M16 groups in enemy-occupied territory. O'Brien has written two other autobiographical World War II books - "Out of the Blue: a Pilot With the Chindits" and "Chasing After Danger".
