But SACOs achievements are less well-known but no less impressive. This Navy unit that never numbered more than 3000 men effectively tied down tens of thousands of Japanese forces in China and inflicted casualties many times their number.This account is not an overly scholarly treatment but is a collection of accounts provided by SACO members themselves. The voices heard in the book are those of the men who conducted these operations. The reader can hear in them the tenor of another era when the whole world was at war and so many Americans put their lives on hold to preserve American liberty.
