Sadly out of print, but the fascinating story of Patrick Heenan, a British Captain in the British Indian Army who spied for Japan in Malaya in 1941.

He radioed information on aircraft movements. Unclear as to his motives, but he did spend 6 months in Japan in the late 30s as a "long leave" (an Indian Army tradition).

A strange story of pro-Japanese espionage within the British Indian Army, probably only partially revealed here. Patrick Heenan was Indian Army boxing champion, not a small thing. The author seems to avoid the topic of Irish nationalism as a possible motive.
