The Fall of Singapore

This book provides a day-by-day history of the Malayan Campaign and the Fall of Singapore from the first alerts as the British prepared to move their forces on to a war footing, through the fighting, to the Japanese imposing their rule on the Chinese in Singapore. It draws from army war diaries, published histories of the campaign, biographies and autobiographies of people involved, and family stories, as well as visiting most of the places connected with the conflict. Accompanying the text are over 2000 maps and illustrations, including many provided by families and never before published.
