Note: four names handwritten alongside seven diggers in front cover photograph. Book in VERY GOOD condition. In 1945, 240 Australians died taking the small Borneo island of Tarakan from the Japanese. The tragedy of Tarakan was that by the time they succeeded, they need not have began. Peter Stanley explores that battle, what it was like and what it means to Australians over fifty years later. He traces the operation from its origins in MacArthur's GHQ, down to the rifle sections patrolling in Tarakan's ruggle jungle. Five maps, at least three dozen b&w photographs, extensive appendices (30 pages), index.
