Product description

Review

"An enthralling and perceptive account, which never loses sight of the human cost of the tragedy" - Yorkshire Evening Post "An insightful and dramatic analysis" - The Good Book Guide"

Synopsis

The Fall of Singapore on 15 February 1942 is a military disaster of enduring fascination. For the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the island, Peter Thompson tells the explosive story of the Malayan campaign, the siege of Singapore, the ignominious surrender to a much smaller Japanese force, and the Japanese occupation through the eyes of those who were there - the soldiers of all nationalities and members of Singapore's beleaguered population.
