Martin Clemens served as a British colonial administrator in the Pacific, Palestine, and Cyprus, specializing in political administration and antiterrorism.

Review:

A remarkable memoir by the near-mythic British coastwatcher who helped shape the first great Allied counter-offensive in the Pacific war. -- New York Review of Books

Significant as an account of the raw physical and moral courage demonstrated by British and Australian coastwatchers against overwhelming odds. -- Choice

The only man who could tell it has finally told the story. And he has told it well. -- Leatherneck
