Osprey Men-at-Arms 431 : Britain's Secret War : The Indonesian Confrontation 1962-1966

The 'Confrontation' between Malaysia and Indonesia in Borneo was a war against Indonesian raids across a 900-mile border. It eventually involved nearly 20,000 British and Commonwealth troops, with air and naval support, and yet, by mutual consent, astonishingly little was reported at the time. This 'secret war' saw the perfection of SAS jungle tactics 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. This book will reveal the experiences of the soldiers who survived and succeeded amidst some of the world's worst jungle terrain. Text by Will Fowler with illustrations by Kevin Lyles.
