Apart from actual combat, every aspect of modern air operations was practised in the liberation of East Timor.
The flying conditions were hazardous and the operating conditions undeveloped. RAAF aircrews and groundcrews worked under trying conditions, with many hours on duty in a primitive environment to ensure the success of the deployment.
As well as Australian forces, UN contingents from many other countries were involved and entered the Timor zone through Australia.
This book is a tribute to the professional performance of the men and women of today's RAAF.
The book is cardcover, with 157 pages 185mm x 265mm, one map, 124 photos, 15 appendices including nominal rolls of the RAAF units deployed, and a list of awards and decorations and operating statistics
