The western powers turned a blind eye and prevaricated at a time when firm action was required against the excesses of the occupying giant.Twenty years and tens of thousands of deaths (it must be said: on both sides) and untold suffering later, Timorese resistance remained strong.Lansell Taudevin was sent to East Timor in 1996 to run an aid project and whilst there, to keep an eye on what was happening.

He did so and kept meticulous records which list in often horrific detail the brutality of the final years of Indonesian occupation.Eventually, after the Timorese voted overwhelmingly for independence in 1999, political leanings changed and the west - particularly Australia - became Timors best new friend.The author, who had sympathised with the Timorese cause, was dismissed.
