The true story of the 42 Australian, New Zealand and British guerrillas and their Borneo-warrior allies who fought behind Japanese lines in World War II and forced the surrender of the last Japanese companies, two months after World War II’s official end. Over 1,000 Japanese were killed in the ‘Semut 1’ operation, a casualty rate out of all proportion to the small size and armaments of the force. But rather than revere and praise their leader, after the war, many of the guerrillas recounted their hatred for the British Major, Tom Harrisson.
