Indonesia's War Over Aceh: Last Stand On Mecca's Porch
by Davies, Matthew N.
About This Book
Since 2001, Indonesia’s military commitment to Aceh province has resulted in one of Southeast Asia’s largest wars for decades. This book presents the background and history of this war, investigating its domestic and international implications, at a time when the recent tsunami catastrophe has brought Aceh to world attention.
Using military doctrinal references and extensive, original research using Indonesian-Malay sources not seen by the English-speaking world, the author reconstructs reported events, combatant forces, terminology and statistical data to expose many of the war’s sensitive issues. He challenges others’ preceding research by detailing the Indonesian military’s mission, structures, combat strains, and activity within political, operational and paramilitary realms.
