From the Publisher
"Lindsay's memoir of his experiences as an American OSS officer with Tito's Partisans stands as a classic work of Resistance literature, but the book's overriding importance lies in its clarification of the ethnic/religious tensions that led to the present Balkan tragedy. . . . The book combines a rousing personal adventure story with new information on the Partisan contribution to the Allied war effort, and at the same time provides a useful lesson in Balkan history that is directly pertinent to the current bloodshed."—Publishers Weekly
"A cracking good tale of covert operations."—Roland Green
"This first-hand account of resistance warfare and internal political gamesmanship among Tito's forces is a compelling introduction to an area whose ethnic hatred remains so much a part of today's news."—John R. Vallely, Siena College Library, Loudonville, N.Y.
"This is a marvellous book, a gripping adventure story which is also an important historical memoir of direct relevance to today's Yugoslavia. . . . It is a brilliantly intelligent account of the nature of subversive operations and of the politics and stategy of the Yugoslav campaign. It is also splendidly written, with the freshness of a text penned in the immediate aftermath of the arresting events it describes."—The Daily Telegraph
