A world where little light penetrates. Of dense vegetation, tangled roots, fetid mud and swamps. Where the helicopter, sophisticated weaponry and technology have revolutionized military combat. But where survival still depends on acute observation and listening for the slightest sound. The jungle. Backdrop to one of the most gruelling of all forms of warfare. To wars that in recent times have changed the course of history. The subject of this expert, extensively illustrated study by Bryan Perrett.

Originally published to acclaim in 1990 by Patrick Stephens Limited, this re-issue represents a determination on the publisher's part to keep this esteemed volume in print.

As a general historical overview, it covers many campaigns within its pages.

The subject of this illustrated study by Bryan Perrett is warfare in a world where little light penetrates. A world of dense vegetation, tangled roots, fetid mud and swamps. Where the helicopter, sophisticated weaponry and technology may well have revolutionised military combat, but where survival still depends on acute observation with all the senses – namely, the jungle, backdrop to one of the most gruelling of all forms of warfare. The text is supported by 21 maps, numerous monochrome illustrations, a bibliography and an index. Originally published in 1990, this book is now available once again in 2015 demonstrating a determination on the publisher’s part to keep this book in print.
