"In an effort to divert China's attention from the Korean front in 1950 and relieve pressure on the allied forces, the CIA sponsored a series of raids along the southeastern coast of China conducted by anti-Communist guerrillas. The guerrillas were trained and supported by the paramilitary arm of the CIA from coastal islands still in Nationalist hands, and their covert operations remained sealed from public view. Now for the first time in print, the full dramatic story of this large-scale paramilitary campaign is revealed by a veteran of the operations." "This eyewitness account of special operations in an area that remains a political and military flashpoint will appeal to everyone from intelligence specialists and China scholars to history buffs and general readers who like action stories."--BOOK JACKET.
