Journeys Hazardous tells a young officer’s tale of “Claret” operations in the undeclared war between Britain and Indonesia in the mid-1960s. These clandestine operations, launched deep in Indonesia, were officially denied, but nevertheless wrested the initiative back from Indonesia and enabled Britain to successfully conclude what was euphemistically known as “confrontation.”

Based on personal diaries, this account tells, with humor and sensitivity, the actions of a Gurkha company operating deep in Indonesian territory. The experiences of junior leadership in unusually independent command make this a weight worth adding to any young leader’s bergen or the older warrior’s bookcase.
