This migration involves these individuals who are acting on behalf of military intelligence, in navigating many war zones, and regions of political turbulence in Japan, Java, India, Ternate, Milan, Aceh and Britain. It is the first occasion in history that European fleets can travel to Japan, in the immediate aftermath of the fall of the Caliph of Andalusia and the rise of Islam in Southeast Asia.
