Book Description

This forbidden story about lunacy at the top was exposed by one soldier's diary. Picture India and Burma in 1942: with unexplored jungles, Himalayan Mountains, monsoon rains, Naga headhunters, and a young man looking for adventure. For fifty years he swore to keep secret the military's 'win at all cost' mentality.

This is not another 'boy goes to war' tale; instead it's about Harry Flynn's struggle with himself as he helped to build the 'road to nowhere' through Japanese-occupied Burma and eventually as a combatant in America's first guerrilla-supported units, Merrill's Marauders and later the Mars Task Force. Malaria, the smell of fear, loneliness and the enemy were overcome through the unbreakable bonds of friendship he made on the battle field and the undying love of his life back home.

It's not about heroes but about people; soldiers who may have been good men even if they weren't brave. Everyone knows the outcome of WWII, where men walked away carrying unspeakable memories and 'lives that could have been' haunted those that lived. Behind the Forgotten Front brings them all back to life and shows that history is about facts driven by the passions and sometimes mistakes of real people.
