About this product
- DescriptionWhat really happened in Singapore and Malaya in the dark days of December 1941 to February 1942? Contrary to received wisdom, Singapore was t given up without a fight, as the testimonies of the men interviewed in this volume show. The fighting at the Slim River, Malaya, in January 1942, a rearguard to keep the Japanese back until reinforcements could reach Singapore, is dramatic eugh on its own. Seven battalion commanders would die there; only two brigadiers and two battalion commanders would escape with their lives. For many, of course, escape was t possible, and they ended up in the torious Japanese POW camps. Their suffering also forms part of this classic and unforgettable study of the Malayan conflict.
