About the book:

The Jungles Explode: On June 16, 1948 the fierce jungles of Malaya gave birth to terror. Silently, ruthlessly, communist insurgents filtered out into the unsuspecting countryside prepared to wreak havoc under the banner of National Liberation. Here for the first time is the story of this seminal struggle, the savage 'War of the Running Dogs,' pitting fanatical guerrillas against a desperate and terrorized populace for the ultimate prize - control of the rich and strategic British colony. Historian Noel Barber introduces us to the leaders and followers on both sides, the overlords and assassins, the befuddled boffins and the razor-sharp commandos - and he details a vicious fight for the hearts and minds of a nation which foreshadowed the grim lessons of Vietnam. These are stories of bravery, valor, intrigue - and triumph.
