Japanese Atrocities in World War IIDecember 3, 2014
Excerpts from Operation King Cobra, Chapter ThreeDecember 3, 2014
In January 1944, according to the American military intelligence agent who told me his story in November 1995, and the basis of my book, Operation King Cobra, the US Army Chief of Staff sent him to the China-Burma-India Theater of war to work jointly with the British Special Operations Executive. His irregular warfare assignments (sabotage and raiding operations) were so classified that they were verbally delivered by Army colonels flying into Calcutta, India, directly from the Pentagon.
One of his first missions was to destroy a Japanese ammunition train as it crossed a 300-foot wooden bridge trestle that crossed a small river in southwest Thailand.
