The Kurils, the border islands in the north of Japan, have been in dispute for many centuries. Taken as reprisals by Russia at the end of World War 2, they were eventually returned in the year 2056 in exchange for favourable trade deals across the Northern Pacific region. Just over a century later, the islands were taken again, by the Russians, and the entire population was relocated to Hokkaido, the northernmost of the Japanese Home Islands.

This is the story of the deception, and the duplicitous method used by the Russians to steal and keep the islands and their plan for the newly discovered oil riches that lie below.

What the Russians did not factor in, in their carefully created plan, was the meteoric rise of the career of Jackson Nakagawa; the man who was to eventually become known as the most fearsome and innovative ground forces commander for more than 200 years.

Never overawed by any assignment, his innovative methodology was to see the decisive defeat of the Russians in what was to become known as the Border Wars; but what no one could foresee was the war that was to come just a few short years later.

Colin was born in the south of England in 1954, the youngest of four, they lived with his grandparents until he turned six when his mother remarried. The family migrated to Australia in 1967 and settled in Adelaide.

At the age of fifteen, he joined the Royal Australian Navy and served twenty years as a weapons technician before retiring to settle in Queensland.

Married in 1977 and with two children, seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren, he lives with his wife, Lesley, just outside of Brisbane.

This is his first published work.
