SHADOW COMMANDER: The Epic Story of Donald D. Blackburn

SHADOW COMMANDER: The Epic Story of Donald D. Blackburn
by Guardia, Mike

1-197270

US Army Captain Donald D. Blackburn refused to lay down his arms when US forces surrendered on Bataan, Philippines, in 1942. He escaped and ultimately raised a private army of over 22,000 men known as 'Blackburn's Headhunters.' The 'unit' devastated the Japanese 14th Army within the western provinces of North Luzon and destroyed the Japanese naval base at Aparri - the largest enemy anchorage in the Philippines.

After WWII, Blackburn remained on active duty and played a key role in initiating Special Forces operations in Laos, Vietnam, and Cambodia in Southeast Asia from 1958 through the Vietnam War, including Operation Ivory Coast: the Son Tay Prison Raid -- the largest POW rescue mission and Special Forces operation of the Vietnam War.
