240 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w drawings, maps. "They watched and waited in nervewracking silence attack-ing only when stung. From treetops, from hostile beaches, from jungle camps, they saw it all and radioed what they saw - their network covering more than a half million square miles of island and ocean in the Japanese-held South Pacific. Hunted by enemy patrols, hounded by disease, starvation and sweltering heat, they risked torture and death from the heart of a Japanese-occupied tropical hell. Here are stories of incredible daring and brilliant leadership - of a hand-picked and highly unorthodox band of heroes who preferred the teeming jungle to the crowded regimentation of camp and office - told with gripping immediacy by the officer who led them. Follow the exploits of men like C.L. Page, the Australian planter whose reporting of the Japanese landing of Rabaul saved Allied lives, yet sealed his own fate - Lieutanant D.C. Horton, who hid 2,000 feet up on the mountainside overlooking the Japanese airfield at Munda and reported every aircraft that landed or took off - Blue Harris, a leader whose cool resourcefulness and legendary escapes were known throughout the islands." A few very faint tiny foxing marks on top of text block, light wrinkling and wear at bottom edge of spine, remainder spray on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, one tiny tear with old tape - two others archivally taped, very light browning to spine, light soiling and rubbing marks - mainly on rear panel, light remainder spray at bottom edge of flaps.
