Silent War

Victor N. Corpus

Colonel Victor Corpus’ Silent War provides a first-hand and honest look into the challenge of communist insurgency in the Philippines and submits his views on how it can be defeated. It is the first book ever written on insurgency by a member of the Armed Forces of the Philippines based on his own inside view of the enemy, by a man who actually lived and fought on the side of the insurgents and who, in fact, became a member of the Central Committee, the highest policy-making organ of the Communist Party of the Philippines, which was a major threat during the reign of Ferdinand Marcos.
