Their mission: to disarm the Japanese forces there, arrange for their repatriation -- and establish order in a country ravaged first by ruthless French colonialism and then by a brutal, confused war between the Japanese and their French Vichy allies on one side and guerrilla resistance fighters and opportunist gangsters on the other." - from the rear cover.
