Jungle Campaign : A Memoir of National Service in Malaya, 1949-51
Based on his journals of the time, Scurr records his 'rite of passage' from being an unsporty youth into something more resembling a man in the course of two years as an infantryman in the Malayan Jungle. In the book he demonstrates, sometimes in vivid detail, why he never considered the jungle to be 'neutral,' as Spencer Chapman claimed. Scurr considered the jungle an implacable enemy that favoured only the British Army's opponents. Very Good Hardback in Near Fine Dust Jacket. Reprint 408 pages.
