Synopsis

The author, a Professor of History at the University of Malaya, recounts the story of one of the few popular civilian uprisings against the Japanese in Southeast Asia during World War II. What was particularly remarkable about the group known as the Kinabalu Guerillas, was that its membership was multiethnic, which set the tone for the relationship between different races in North Borneo, present day Sabah, for years to come.
