Publisher's Summary

Behind Japanese Lines has a great deal to say about the relations with the Filipinos and about the problems of dealing with and fighting the Hukbalahaps, the communist guerrillas or, indeed, in opposing the Japanese. This book adds considerable insights into the significance of guerrilla warfare as it relates to modern warfare in general.
The book is published by The University Press of Kentucky.

Critic Reviews

"Stands out for the vividness of its detail, its effort to sort fact from legend, and its tribute to the heroism of the resistance movement, which was almost entirely Filipino." ( Choice)
"Makes war novels look pale. The book is engaging because it is as candid as the law allows." ( Washington Times)
"An exceptionally valuable contribution." ( Military)

First-hand account of guerrilla war on Luzon

An interesting account of one American's experience on Luzon in the Philippines following the American surrender in 1942. With little or no support from the United States, these Americans and their Filipino comrades-in-arms carried on the fight against the Japanese for three years in whatever capacity they could. Having been stationed on Luzon for several years, I am familiar with many of the places where these events took place. The narrative would have been much easier to listen to had the reader been given coaching on the proper pronunciation of Philippine words and place names. The author's closing evaluation of the post-war treatment of the Philippines in general and Filipino soldiers by the United States is, in my opinion, quite accurate. Overall an enjoyable read.
