Frank Holober:
Raiders of the China Coast: CIA Covert Operations During the Korean War (Civil War in the West) - hardcover

ISBN: 1557503885

[SR: 1545294], Hardcover, [EAN: 9781557503886], US Naval Institute Press, US Naval Institute Press, Book, [PU: US Naval Institute Press], US Naval Institute Press, In an effort to divert China's attention from the Korean front in 1950 and relieve pressure on the allied forces, the CIA sponsored a series of raids along the southeastern coast of China conducted by anti-Communist guerrillas. The guerrillas were trained and supported by the paramilitary arm of the CIA from coastal islands still in Nationalist hands, and their covert operations remained sealed from public view. Now for the first time in print, the full dramatic story of this large-scale paramilitary campaign is revealed by a veteran of the operations. Author Frank Holober, a Harvard-educated Chinese specialist and veteran intelligence officer, takes the reader inside the little-known world of clandestine partisan operations early in the Cold War. In lively, straightforward prose, he describes the dangerous top-secret raids launched by Chinese Nationalist guerrillas (assisted by a colorful band of American adventurers) from Quemoy and other lesser-known islands off the Chinese mainland. Both anecdotal and analytical, his book is serious history with humorous overtones, based on his own experience and those of his comrades. Holober is at his best recalling the courageous feats and robust adventures of the "civilian" employees of the Agency-run Western Enterprises, Inc., which included Army and Marine officers on loan to the CIA, World War II veterans, reservists, smokejumpers, college football stars, and psychological warfare specialists surrounding a nucleus of veterans of the OSS's fabled 101 Detachment. Readers are treated to unforgettable characters with names like "One-Eyed Dragon," "Great White Father," "Two-Gun Creacy," "Fat Wang," and "Earthquake McGoon," whose camaraderie and zest for living are matched only by their "can-do" daring. Here, too, are the heroic exploits of the CIA's Civil Air Transport, run by the legendary Flying Tiger Claire Chennault. Totally candid and unusually insightful, this eyewitness account of special operations in an area that remains a political and military flashpoint will appeal to everyone from intelligence specialists and China scholars to history buffs and general readers who like action stories., 4891, China, 4884, Asia, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 271588011, Korea, 4898, North, 4899, South, 4884, Asia, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 1043892, Canada, 5011, Military, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5015, Intelligence & Espionage, 5011, Military, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5016, Korean War, 465288, Aviation, 465290, Campaigns, 465292, Personal Narratives, 5011, Military, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5018, Naval, 5011, Military, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5035, World, 15812171, Civilization & Culture, 3825131, Expeditions & Discoveries, 4992, Jewish, 11764653011, Maritime History & Piracy, 6343224011, Religious, 16244141, Slavery & Emancipation, 15812211, Women in History, 9, History, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 491412, Asia, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books, 684270011, Military, 468230, History, 468206, Humanities, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
