SYNOPSIS: Ian MacHorton, a young officer in the first long-range penetration raid of Wingate's Chindits into Japanese-dominated Burma, was wounded in the leg and left to die in the jungle or surrender to the Japanese. He decided to walk to the Allied lines. Starving, wounded again and taken prisoner, raving, involved in violent jungle fighting, and embarking on perilous river crossings in leaky boats under fire, he somehow survived and reached India. -and-The first long-range penetration of Wingate's Chindits into Japanese-dominated Burma in 1943 is, in itself, a story of incredible fortitude, courage and determination. Ian MacHorton, as a young officer in that raid, faced every privation that that most vicious of campaigns could offer. Wounded in the leg, and so left to die or surrender to the Japanese, he decided to confront the horrors of hundreds of miles of jungle and walk to the Allied lines. Starving, at times raving, taken prisoner, engaged in bitter jungle fighting whenever the Japanese encountered him and other British stragglers, he survived all and finally reached the safety of India.
