    This is one of the best books i have ever read it tells an amazing story that I had never known before beginning with the training of the group that became the OSS and going on to the story of their incredible exploits behind Japanese lines in Burma as spies and guerrillas working with the American Chinese and British armiesThese were intelligent and brave and colourful men who accomplished what seemed to be impossibleIt could not have happened without a great deal of help from the Kachins a native people in that part of Burma who had endured the burningof their villages and horrible torture by the Japanese which gave them strong motivation to help the Allies Their knowledge of the jungle was very valuable and helped accomplish many things and saved many lives

    Although the subject was interesting I found the style of writing off putting Many terms and names of objects were not explained or given interpretations
