Britain's Secret War: The Indonesian Confrontation 1962-66 (Men-at-arms Series)

Author(s): Will Fowler & Kevin Lyles (ill.)


The 'Confrontation' between Malaysia and Indonesia in Bornew 20/1/2006 the war against Indonesian raids across a 900-mile border in some of the world's worst jungle terrain - eventually involved nearly 20,000 British and Commonwealth troops, with air and naval support; and yet, by mutual consent, it was astonishingly little reported at the time. This 'secret war' saw the perfection of SAS jungle tactics; a Parachute Regiment action described as 'a second Rorke's Drift'; and audacious secret missions deep inside enemy territory, including the award to a Gurkha soldier of the British Army's only 'living VC' for 40 years.
