In The Dirty Dozen, Major John Reisman led twelve criminal misfits on a suicidal mission behind enemy lines in France. Now Reisman is back. His new mission is to infiltrate the web of warlords who run a remote corner of Japanese-occupied South-East Asia. Only this time he has no team to back him up. This time he's on his own. From his embattled parachute drop into Burma to the climactic explosion across the border in Vietnam, A DIRTY DISTANT WAR is full of intrigue, deception and betrayal. Capturing all the innocence, and guilt, of America's fateful entry into South-East Asia, this is a novel of compelling power and resonance.
