Many books have been written about Second World War special forces operations in Europe and the Middle East. Much less has been said about such operations in South-East Asia – those launched against the Japanese in Sumatra and the Andaman Islands, and the Germans in Goa. These operations, and the exceptional men who took part in them, have been almost forgotten. David Miller, in this gripping account, sets the record straight. His book is based on extensive original research, including long-hidden family documents, revealing much information for the first time and his narrative is fascinating reading for anyone who is interested in special operations and the war against the Axis powers in South-East Asia. His history is the first general account of these operations - it is a landmark in the field.

All three sections of the book are well researched, and provide a detailed and convincing picture of each of these operations (or at least as much as possible in the case of Operation Minerva). This is a useful addition to the literature on Special Forces Operations of the Second World War, and on the war in South-East Asia.

History of War

Although much has been written over the years about the special forces of the Second World War in Europe and the Middle East, little is known of their operations in south-east Asia - those launched against the Japanese in Sumatra and the Andaman Islands, and the Germans in Goa. This first-rate work describes each operation in vivid detail and recognises the courage, endurance and leadership of those involved in fighting Axis powers.

The Great War, July 2016 - Mark Marsay

As the first published factual account of these operations this book grips the reader from page one and will stand in tribute to the courage, endurance and leadership of those involved.

The Bulletin of the Military Historical Society No.264

An excellent book full of newly uncovered detail that adds to the corpus of knowledge about irregular warfare that laid the ground for those specialist soldiers of today who operate in the secret but dangerous work of raiding and intelligence gathering.
