The book is the result of a writing collaboration between a commanding officer and one of his men. Colonel William R. Peers, who would later rise to the rank of Lieutenant General, was commander of Detachment 101 from December, 1943 to July 1945, and before that, the Operations and Training Officer. Dean Brelis, who later became a novelist and foreign correspondent with Time magazine, was at the time a field agent, first as a sergeant and then as a lieutenant, during 1944 and 1945. Although the story of 101's guerrilla operations is seen in this book through the eyes of the commanding officer, the actual text is the result of collaboration between the two men, who hoped it embodied not only the difficult command problems of a complex guerrilla operation, but the experiences and accomplishments of the men in the field as well.
