In 1948 Communist terrorists were waging a bloody war against estates and rubber-plantation owners in Malaya. Chased into the interior by British Army units, the guerrillas soon became experts at survival and evasion, emerging from the jungle only to launch increasingly ferocious attacks. In 1952, on the recommendation of Lieutenant-Colonel 'Mad' Mike Calvert, veteran of the Chindit campaigns in Burma, 22 SAS was formed as a special counter-insurgency force. Three years later the re-formed SAS began their jungle patrols. They learned how to survive for weeks at a time in hostile terrain, often waist-deep in water, and under attack from wild animals, leeches and poisonous insects. That extraordinary campaign climaxed in a nightmarish two weeks in the Telok Anson swamp tracking the troops of the notorious 'Baby Killer', Ah Hoi, while the regiment's dreadful and unforgettable experiences in the Malayan jungle laid the foundations for the SAS's legendary survival skills. Soldier F SAS: Guerrillas in the Jungle is the sixth in a series of novels based on this extraordinary regiment a thrilling 'factoid' adventure about the most daring soldiers in military history: the SAS!

Life in India has changed beyond recognition in the last seventy years, and I am making an effort at preserving the memory of a lost past for my grandchildren and their yet to come progeny, to relive some of the jungle stories and memories. JUNGLE SALT “You can take a man out of the Jungle, but if he is born to it – you cannot take the Jungle out of a man”. Anon Jungle Odyssey is a soldier’s ‘Shikar’ biography. Glimpses of experiences with his father the ‘Deva-Pitta’ of these stories perhaps are the defining events that qualify him as a “Jungle Salt”. Soldering closely enabled him to retain his lifelong interest in Wildlife – the fauna – flora of our vast subcontinental size country. It has been a fulsome life that exposed him to the Jungle lore and the beauty of its jungle and wildlife.

In March of 1944, Private Paul D. Veatch was shipped out to to the Pacific Theater of World War II operations. Over the next year and half he was involved in combat in the Philippines, surviving both ambush and shipwreck. Separated from his unit, the 24th Infantry, through tragedy and rescue, he served with both the 21st and the 19th. When the war was declared over, he was part of the occupation force in Japan until his honorable discharge in 1946. This memoir of Veatch's experiences is a dramatic account of combat in the jungle and at sea and a memorable chronicle of one soldier's survival. It is also a remarkable coming of age story, as the young Private Veatch finds friendship, love, and, during his time at his last post, the ancient city of Kurashiki, a fascination for the Japanese culture. His account includes his perspective on historic battles, as well as his thoughts and feelings about combat, culture, home, and the transformation he underwent through war and peace.
