AS NEW. A gripping, best-selling, first-hand account of Z-Forces operations in Borneo during WW II by a West Australian war hero. The author (Jack Wong Sue, DCM JP AKR 13), a former RAAF crash rescue boat sergeant who volunteered for Z Special Unit, has written an enthralling series of stories in this most interesting and readable book. Taken from notes hastily compiled from a wartime diary, and aided by a phenomenal memory. The book does not follow a sequential pattern. It is a random collection of Jack’s experiences, impressions and observations during nine months spent on active operations behind Japanese lines in Borneo (Some controversy regarding its accuracy.)
