Aristocracy of Armed Talent:
The Military Elite in Singapore
Ling Wei Chan
This is probably the most detailed study of the senior ranks of the Singapore armed forces to date. Based on interviews with 28 senior officers, the author attempts to discover what, if anything makes them so special, what motivates them, how the role of such flag officers is changing and what they expect to do after retirement. As the title suggests, the analysis is generally uncritical of a group sometimes described elsewhere as 'paper generals.' New Paperback. First Edition 495 pages.
