Luke Hunt has written a lucid and entertaining tale of international politics, warfare and journalistic double-dealing. A valuable and important book.' Rupert Winchester, The Mekong Review. ; 'Mata Hari, Kim Philby...Luke Hunt's magnificent Punji Trap adds the Vietnamese War's most effective double agent, Pham Xuan An, to the short list of master spies who changed the course of 20th century history.'
