Dutch East Indies 1945-1949

Post by Soldat84 » 12 Sep 2003 16:24

Can anyone tell me any good sources for the Dutch 1945-1949 campaign against the Indonesian nationalists, online or offline?

I'm interested in that campaign because I myself am Indonesian and want to read from other sources other than my (biased) high school history book.

Also If anyone can tell me some good sources for pre-war and post-war Dutch East Indies army, that'd be great too!

This probably won't be of any help to you, but there is an excellent
Dutch documentary about the WW2 Dutch forces entitled "The Battle Of
The Java Sea".

It came out in either 1996 or 1997.

Difficult question, I don't know any books about this topic which are not written in the Dutch language.
