Summary
"From 1955 until 1988, spanning the end of the British Empire and the start of the Cold War through to real engagement with Asia, more than 50,000 Australian servicemen and their families rotated through the Penang region of Malaysia for two-year tours of duty. These men, women and children lived full lives during their deployment, a bastion of Australianness in the midst of Malays, Chinese and Indians. This evocative - and at times personal - book shines a light on the complex, uneven and dynamic history of the Australian military presence in northern Malaysia and the lives of the people who lived there."--back cover
