The Philippines, 1943. The remnants of the American forces-those who escaped the Japanese-have fled into the mountains. But their war has only just begun. Led by the fiery, unorthodox Lt. Col. Wendell Fertig, a ragtag army of troops and Philippine soldiers must stand against the might of the Imperial Japanese Army. But their supplies are low, the situation is desperate, and the time is running out. Now, a cadre of OSS agents is their only contact with the outside world-and their only hope for survival.

This is a WWII book (1943- Philippines). Very British in style. Very exciting - desperate situations where time seems to always be running out. A few brave men against the Imperial Japanese Army.

In The Fighting Agents, W.E.B. Griffin retells the story (previously told in Behind the Lines) of Wendell Fertig, a U.S. Army officer who promoted himself to general and led a ragtag guerrilla force against the Japanese after the fall of the Philippines in 1943. This time, however, Griffin focuses his attention on the OSS, which, among other things, was tasked with resupplying Fertig and reinforcing his efforts to undermine the Japanese war machine. In this fourth volume of a bestselling series featuring the American intelligence service during World War II, James Whittaker, a rakish, romantic army air corps captain who happens to be a close family friend of OSS chief Wild Bill Donovan, is assigned to sneak into the Philippines by submarine and bring gold, arms, and war materiel to the renegade general.

A combination of history and fiction, this book focuses on the formation and early years of the O.S.S., the precursor of the C.I.A.
