Product description

Review

This meticulously researched book opens up rich new detail on many aspects of the battle of Hong Kong. It provides a balanced view of complex and controversial events, not least the important participation of the Canadian Army's 'C' Force. Indispensable for anyone with an interest in the Hong Kong battle.--Roger Sarty, author of "The Maritime Defence of Canada" and "The Battle of the Atlantic"

No future work on the battle will be able to ignore this book. Tony Banham has done for the battle of Hong Kong what students of other WWII battles will wish had been done for their subjects. They may indeed now try to emulate this valuable work.--Brian Farrell, Associate Professor of Military History, National University of Singapore

Tony Banham's work, "Not the Slightest Chance: The Defence of Hong Kong, 1941," is an exemplary piece of scholarship and an important contribution to the history of this often overlooked battle. He is to be commended for his thorough research and detailed narrative.--Pacific War Study Group
