Merdeka Square (Released in North America as Freedom Square) "Tense, intelligent and gripping. Merdeka Square presents a rich portrayal of the terrifying crisis which brought President Soeharto to power, and explores an exotic shadowy world, mixing undoubted fact and exciting fiction in an intoxicating form.


Merdeka Square” (“Freedom Square”)

For the Western spies on the prowl in Jakarta, 1965 was the best of times and the worst of times. The political climate was as sordid as a Turkish steam bath and just as tricky to find your way about in. But there was real intelligence work to be done. The agents saw their task as saving Indonesia from the creeping Red menace. The country’s Communist Party was Asia’s largest outside China and was gaining influence over President Soekarno. His wavering threatened to destabilize an already shaky Southeast Asia as the Soviet Union’s influence and investments in Indonesia soured, whilst China increased its hold on political life.

The West, alarmed by the growing communist influence in Asia, funded six assassination attempts against President Soekarno and, when these failed, coerced and bribed a group of generals to overthrow their charismatic leader. Secretly, Australia deployed its SAS along the Malay/Indonesian border and for three years these special forces troops penetrated deep into Indonesia, killing the Soviet backed enemy, the skies above protected by nuclear-armed British Vulcan bombers which flew regular, covert missions over Indonesia’s densely populated cities.
