Tarakan: A Personal War (Paperback)

Tarakan: A Personal War (Paperback)


by Tim Blue

The second world war catapulted more than 70,000 young Australians into a war in Indonesia in mid 1945. More than fifty years later the questions remain about why Australians were ever involved, and why nearly 700 had to die.

Tim Blue examines the attack on Tarakan, a small island off the Netherlands East Indies, as recorded honestly in letters home, diaries and recollections from the perspective of time.
