Colonel Chapman is one of the few who seem born to adventure. It would he small matter for wonder if he is already a myth in the Malayan jungle, where for over three years he lived, having had no previous experience of the country, harassing the Japanese, training the Chinese guerrillas, undertaking — often alone — the most arduous marches, twice captured and escaping from his captors, his life a crazy pattern of illness, frustration and hair-raising peril, ennobled by his will to work for the liberation of the people he had come to love.”
