About this product
- DescriptionIn this vivid memoir, Laxalt recalls his service during WWII as a code officer in the Belgian Congo. In this remote jungle outpost, a secret war was being fought for control of the world's future. Deep in the Congo lay a mine that produced a little-kwn substance called uranium, and for reasons one then understood, the Allies and the Germans were struggling ferociously to control this mine and its ore. The cloth edition is a limited numbered, signed edition.
