The Untold Story of Special Branch Operations in Singapore 1915-1942
Ban Kah Choon
In probably the first comprehensive review of intelligence operations in the former Straits Settlements, the author has produced a very readable history of this exciting period. The Special Branch was formed when it was realised that the effects of World War I were making themselves felt in the Far East. The period covered by the book also witnesses the 'threat' of growing nationalism in colonial territories as well as the rise of Communism. Very Good Paperback First Edition 269 pages. The book has occasional black and white photographs, a bibliography and index.
