Australia’s contribution to Indonesia’s independence struggle is fairly well-known, but this book tells a lesser known part of the story: Australia’s leading role in the 1947 UN Consular Commission and the monitoring of the first UN cease-fire order. The commission’s military observers were pioneer peacekeepers, and an examination of the commission’s activities is useful for understanding the Indonesian independence struggle in the following years. Australia’s involvement in the commission has also played a positive role in long-term Australian-Indonesian relations.
