|Plot Summary of Belly Of The Dragon|
Nine CIA operatives, most of which were attached to Marine units, launch a raid into 1951 "neutral" China to destroy a secret jet engine factory. Getting in was the easy part. Getting out becomes a nightmare, as they face not only the enemy, but one of their own who has become a delusional, uncontrolable, pre-historic thinking madman. Should they kill him and leave him behind or follow the Marine Creed, "We bring out our wounded" and risk the loss of the survivors. This is real midnight oil burner.
