This book traces the first beginnings of one of the great torrents of history as seen and recorded first-hand. Jacobs personal eyewitness account of the developments in Sumatra immediately after the Japanese surrender in August of 1945 combines the excitement and adventure of a fast-paced novel with a valuable record of a lost portion of history.
