Product Description

Blood on Borneo is a 'must read' that details the unique memoirs of Jack Wong Sue, a highly trained covert operative of Australia's Z SPECIAL UNIT during WW2.

Read about the 19 year old's nine month secret inserion behind Japanese lines in the then British North Borneo where he existed on the surface as a Chinese 'coolie' servant. Able to mingle amongst the locals and the Japanese enemy gathering intelligence information, he operated from the covers of the Borneo jungle with his team of highly trained members of 'Z SPECIAL UNIT' along with their trained local guerilla forces, wreaking havoc upon the hated Japanese.

Blood On Borneo is an Australian besteller that details the only eyewitness account to the infamous Borneo Death Marches of 1945 that has been hailed as the worst atrocities ever committed upon Australian prisoners of war - all as seen through the eyes of a 19 year old boy - and a highly trained Z Man. Journey with Jack as he colourfully describes the horror of jungle warfare hand-in-hand with the beauty of the flora and fauna of the native jungles.

Re-live his lonely journey at the heavily Japanese guarded Bongawan Railway Station where he successfully extracted Ah Lee, the Chinese Stationmaster for interrogation in the jungle. This brave deed later found him decorated with Australia's second highest decoration - the 'Distinguished Conduct Medal'.

The foreword to this book was written by Major General Michael Jeffery AC CVO MC KStJ CitWA who is today, Australia's Governor General. He concludes the foreword with: 'It is a book that should be read by all Australians'.
