by Col. F. Spencer Chapman, D.S.O
Before the war Colonel Spencer Chapman was a traveller and explorer. In his book 'The Jungle is Neutral' he has told the story of his guerrilla fighting experiences during the three-and-a-half years spent behind the Japanese lines in the Malayan jungle. This talk examines the kind of book from which the traveller gets most pleasure and profit in the course of an expedition
