Never So Few: A Novel

'“The author’s grasp of this material, his ability to assimilate history to the purpose of fiction make his book far superior to most first novels. He has, moreover, in the person of Maj. Con Reynolds, created a thoroughly admirable character. Reynolds is equally well drawn.” —The New York Times   “An exotic and absorbing experience.” —Saturday Review   “Searing.” —Library Journal   “The whole picture of the guerrilla fighting in Burma emerges with its strange undertones of intense patriotism, its moments of almost spiritual aspiration, its violence and crudity.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred “I highly recommend this outstanding World War II novel. . . . A compelling tale of not only Captain Chamales, but the WWII CIA predecessor the OSS and the US Army Special Forces commonly known as the Green Berets.” —Charles B. Johnson, former chairman, Franklin Templeton Investments   “[A] gritty tale of unconventional warfare in the Far East . . . Chamales’s narrative explores how the peculiar nature of unconventional battle affected the men who fought. [His] own experience as an army captain who parachuted into Lashio, Burma, and trained and led a battalion of Kachin Rangers comes through in vivid detail. . . . Providing just enough strategic context, Chamales delves deeper into the moral issues faced by leaders in battle.” —James Clarke, graduate, United States Military Academy at West Point and former Captain, United States Army, 82nd Airborne Division and 1st Special Operations Command “Gripping autobiographical fiction, told by a born storyteller with an arresting personal story . . . It is a novel but would also have been compelling as a nonfiction, truly remarkable war memoir. . . . This is a book so personal and emotionally charged that it is both poetic and infused with the writer’s convictions.” —Pete Wilson, former senator and governor of California  '
