An excellent memoir by an OSS officer who first led the Psychological Warfare Branch in North Africa and in late 1943 served as deputy to Admiral Louis Mountbatten, head of the combined Anglo-American South East Asia Command (SEAC). This was the organization that allowed OSS operations in the Far East when General MacArthur would not. After the war Taylor served on the U.S. Psychological Strategy Board and later became a staff writer for Reporter magazine.
