The Battle for Singapore,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Battle For Singapore: The true story of the greatest catastrophe of World War II (Kindle Edition)
I much enjoyed this exposé of the loss of Singapore and, the more so, the part that this played in the destruction of the long-cherished idea that occidental man was superior to the oriental. Sadly, countless lives were lost in puncturing this particular ego which, in this modern age, seems so axiomatic.
The author has done a splendid job of weaving the military scenario into a well-described geo-political context. It is an excellent background for understanding the post-WWll political machinations of the region.
