The 'Confrontation' between Malaysia and Indonesia in Bornew (January 20, 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.
  • During the 1960s Indonesia's Sukarno tried to create a far-reaching union of post-colonial Asian states. Unfortunately for him, the states of Malaya, Brunei, Sabah and Sarawak declined to be placed under his leadership. These former British colonies chose to form the new nation of Malaysia. This set the stage for a low-level military fight between Indonesia and Commonwealth forces.

    The "secret war" took place concurrently with the conflict in Vietnam, and saw some parallels with it (use of helicopters, "hearts and minds" campaign with the locals, etc.) but with the small scale of the forces involved the fight neither became a critical piece to either side's political survival nor was it of high enough visibility in domestic or international media to the point where disengagement was impossible.

    Well-written, with original artwork, photographs and maps.

  • You mean the Indonesians were bad guys? This one got minor coverage in US papers, but it was another rehearsal for Vietnam, if anyone paid attention. Not a bad job by Mr Fowler and Osprey.

  • Great book

  • Very interesting

  • This interesting account of the military operations that afflicted British forces in Malaysia between 1962 and 1966 mostly concentrate on the problems in Borneo. The English army had only recently suppressed the Malaya emergency in which tnes of thousands of Communist Chinese peasants had tied up some 40,000 British troops. When that had ended in 1960 things began to deteriorate with recently independent Malaysia (ind. 1957) fighting with Indonesia which had become independent in 1945 and was in the midst of a campaign fo ethnic-cleansing against its Chinese minority who were suspected of being Communists.

    A series of gueilla fights ensued in which some 20,000 British troops took part. A fascinating story about Southeast Asia, one that was not reported at the time and its rarely spoken about today. An interesting history.

    Seth J. Frantzman

  • Excellent artwork by K.Lyles and a good deal of background information on the conflict from the author. Had the latter aspect been examined further and the links to the Malayan Emergency investigated more thoroughly (to the detriment of some of the less interesting information on purely operational matters), this work would no doubt have deserved a five star review. In any event, highly commended.

  • Another great Osprey publioation. See South African special forces review. It will be the same. Cheers!

  • thank you
