"In 1943 Major-General Orde Wingate startled the military world by his daring raid in command of 77 Brigade into the heart of Japanese-occupied Burma. In t he following year Wingate master-minded an even more ambitious operation, which involved the flying in of about 10,000 men and 1,000 animals behind enemy lines to harass the Japanese and disrupt their communications, with the aid of close t a c t i c a l s upport by USAAF No. 1 Air Commando under Colonel Philip Cochran. 'Chindit' was the name given to these operations and to the men who took part in them, derived from the Burmese word for the mythical beast that guards their pagodas fr om e vi l. Th i s book is a personal account of the 1944 operation by an officer who served on the staff of 111 Brigade. It tells the story of the preparations in central India for this arduous form of warfare, which Wingate called Long Range Pen etr ati on, th e fl ig ht deep into enemy territory and the subsequent campaign of guerrilla operations after the sudden death of Wingate...."
