This book's a winner and will stand the test of time,
This review is from: Not the Slightest Chance: The Defense of Hong Kong, 1941 (Paperback)There have been numerous books recounting the tragic events of the three week battle for Hong Kong and I believe that I have read most of them. In my opinion, 'Not the Slightest Chance' is a fine book that has succeeded in bringing real academic rigour to a description of the garrison and how it and the civilians fared during those tragic times in December 1941. I have used it on several occasions as a basis for exploring the battle sites in Hong Kong and can recommend it absolutely to anyone who seeks to delve more deeply into the reasons why and how Hong Kong fell in such a short time. Tony Banham's superb book is a must for anyone with even the slightest interest in that period.

Not the most objective review I have ever seen , few people when reading history read in isolation - this book is worth buying.
I disagree with the review.
