Description:
Seize the Day is a suspenseful real-life military and secret service memoir of considerable scope. Jack Harris, a prize-winning novelist, writes with nostalgia of his youth, of pride in his post-war army service in Japan and with exhilaration about the pursuit of the defeated North Korean Army late in 1950. Wounded that year Harris returned to Australia, later studied Chinese and was posted back to Korea in 1953 and placed in charge of a group of line-crossing South Koreans. On his discharge Harris joined ASIO (Australia's national security service) and in 1960 was posted to their station in Hong Kong. Five years later he was a Director in Myer Overseas and he was to spend thirty years in South East Asia. In this book he discusses the Petrov defection and later from Hong Kong he observes Chairman Mao's Cultural Revolution and how some of Mao's maddened young Red Guards, urged on by Madame Mao, threatened the Colony. A gripping autobiography - a subtle and powerful evocation of one man's military career and life in Far East intelligence. Includes exclusive photographs from the author's private archive.
