When Australian Bill Reynolds escaped from Singapore in February 1942, sailing in a battered Japanese fishing boat, he had no idea that his vessel would be the catalyst for a daring mission behind enemy lines. Sailing in the Krait, a small band of intrepid men attacked enemy shipping in Singapore Harbour, an action with far reaching and tragic consequences. The following year, members of the same team undertook a second and more ambitious raid - Operation Rimau. Historian Lynette Silver tells the story of both these raids and gives an insight into the hazardous world of covert operations. Soft cover, photographs, 464 pages.
