“This is the story of the man who—at the time of the fall of Manila—was in charge of naval docks there, who escaped to the United States and in Washington helped formulate the whole plan for guerilla warfare. The results of his careful planning, of the bringing of “‘the aid’” so long awaited by the nucleus on the Islands—Filipinos, un-surrendered soldiers—arms, ammunition, medicines;—of the coordination of all unrelated guerilla movements;—of the “‘salt water taxi’” (submarine) equipment missions;—of the installations of coast watcher and radio stations; of the evacuation of American and Allied personnel and civilian population; of his discovery of guerilla initiative, efficiency and versatility; of the hide and seek of non-combat, ambush tactics, and the promotion of defensive to offensive strategy; all this eventually came into its own with D-Day on Leyte, October 1944. A story of military and morale building that paid dividends to our advantage, told with the flourish and zest it deserves.”-Kirkus Reviews
