One of the most fascinating and heretofore untold stories of the Korean War is that of the special operations of the United Nations Partisan Infantry Korea (UNPIK). Operating from a clandestine camp, U.S. Army 2nd Lt. Ben Malcom coordinated the intelligence activities of eleven partisan battalions, including one known as the White Tigers. With Malcom's experiences as its focus, White Tigers examines all aspects of guerrilla activities in Korea. Malcom's first-hand insight combined with previously classified details makes a unique and important contribution to the exciting history of special operations.

About the Author:

Ben S. Malcom is a retired U.S. Army colonel and businessman.

From Publishers Weekly:

This is the untold story of the U.S. Army's role in unconventional warfare in the Korean War. An army first lieutenant, Malcom was handpicked to go behind enemy lines to recruit, train and lead North Korean partisans in their war against Chinese and North Korean forces. He recounts how he won the guerrillas' trust and, with a minimum of support from Far East Command, mounted a series of operations that combined sabotage with intelligence-gathering. (His 4th Partisan Infantry Battalion provided the framework for establishing the Army's Special Forces in 1952.) His account of the raids behind enemy lines makes for exciting reading, and he pays moving tribute to the Koreans' extraordinary stamina, seeming indifference to pain and chivalric code of conduct. But the most eloquent passages revolve around his complaint that the institutional knowledge he acquired during the war was ignored in Vietnam, where U.S. military advisers had to learn the hard lessons of guerrilla warfare on their own. Malcom served as a battalion commander in Vietnam; Martz coauthored Solitary Survivor.
