Singapore and the Indonesian Revolution 1945-50: Recollections of Suryono Darusman

About the Publication

Singapore became a base for Indonesian special operations during the years 1945-50, both as a source of material needed by the newly independent Republic of Indonesia in the face of probable designs on the part of the Netherlands East Indies government to force a military solution to the conflict, and as a transit port in the commercial relations between the two neighbouring countries. This book, based on the author's personal involvment in the events at the time, is the first written account of the part played by Singpore, its government and the three ethnic communities, in the struggle for Indonesia's national independence.
