From the Publisher"Compared to the campaigns in the Pacific, the Southeast Asian campaigns of World War II have received limited attention in military history (the possible exception being the campaign in Burma). In his second book on the role of Thailand in the war, Dr. Reynolds has provided a well-written and fascinating addition to the relatively small body of scholarship in this area."
-Phillip J. Ridderhof, U.S. Marine Corps, III Marine Expeditionary Force, Okinawa, Japan, H-War
"With Thailand's Secret War, Reynolds proves that he is a dean among scholars of intelligence in the Far East during the Second World War. His exhaustive archival research and exploitation of untapped sources have produced a landmark work that is geared towards serious students of both intelligence and the Second World War in the Far East."

"Thailand's Secret War is engaging, well documented, and includes an especially thought-provoking epilogue...a balanced and nuanced account." - Military History, Barry M. Stentiford, Grambling State University
"Reynolds has researched this fascinating story with meticulous care. The evidence is marshalled clearly and the result is a first-rate case study."
The International Historical Review
"Dr. Reynolds has provided a well-written and fascinating addition to the relatively small body of scholarship in this area.... This was a very engaging read... It is also a valuable history to help understand the present state of Thailand and Southeast Asia."

"Professor Reynolds has scoured archives, libraries and collections of private papers from all over the world. He has conducted dozens of interviews with survivors. He loves the stories he has unearthed and has befriended an enormous, colourful cast of characters. Thailand's Secret War will certainly be the definitive book on the subject" Pacific Affairs David Chandler, Monash University
"Thailand's Secret War is the most detailed work yet published on the published on the intricate political and strategic issues intertwined with Thailand's participation in World War II...Reynold's immensely valuable research and use of first-hand sources provides a superb and absorbing account of how and why the Seri Thai movement achieved its goal.
