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.

Ray C. Hunt escaped the Bataan Death March and organized a troop of American and Filipino guerrillas.

Bernard Norling was professor emeritus of history at the University of Notre Dame and the author of numerous books, including Behind Japanese Lines and Lapham's Raiders.

REVIEWS:

“A first-person account of life with the Philippine guerrillas of World War II, written by an air force sergeant who spent three years in central Luzon.”

Booklist

“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

“A thrilling, informative book.”

Ex-POW Bulletin

“Hunt tells his own harrowing tale as a guerrilla fighter, how he formed fighting groups, their fears, illnesses and reflections on the outcome of the years in the Hell of the Pacific.”

Historical Media Review

“Makes war novels look pale. The book is engaging because it is as candid as the law allows.”

Washington Times

“An exceptionally well written, eye witness narrative that is a much appreciated and welcome contribution to the growing library of World War II literature regarding combat operations in the Pacific Theater. ”

Wisconsin Bookwatch

“General Huntís arguments deserve detailed consideration and his book should be read by all serious students of the Vietnam War.”
