This book is neither an academic exercise nor a comprehensive account of the country's political history. What it provides is an account of events that academia will not and cannot capture, events of a period that were never told nor recorded in print, events that only an eyewitness could provide into events that laid the cornerstone for an independent Malaya.
"Dato' Onn led the Malays at a critical point in their history. The Malays were in danger of being marginalised in their own country. Dato' Onn alone may be considered the first Malays warrior who guided the nation's fight against the British."
Dato' Seri Dr. Mahathir Mohamad
"Without Dato' Onn, UMNO would not exist. Without UMNO, the Alliance would never have been born, there would have been no Tunku Abdul Rahman as we know him. Without the alliance between UMNO, MCA, and MIC, Independence could never have been achieved
Dato' Seri Abdullah Haji Ahmad Badawi
