Summary: "As a POW in a notorious Indochina prison camp, French Lt. Col. Pierre Raspéguy studies the political and military strategies of his captors, the Viet Minh. After his release, Raspéguy finds himself estranged from an unsympathetic public at home and joins a paratrooper unit in Algeria. Again facing an enemy free to fight without rules, he begins to use his newly learned guerrilla tactics--tactics out of step with the ideals of just war."--Back cover.
