The Redundancy of Courage by Timothy Mo

A stirring fictional testament to the East Timor resistance fighters, this is an account of the crazed brutality, starvation and disease which were their daily fare. In this furiously unsentimental novel about a forgotten war, Mo reveals with sympathy and political acumen the real meaning of nobility: courage, exercised when it can achieve nothing.
Timothy Mo was born in Hong Kong.
