Report From Malaya
Bartlett was given all facilities by General Templer, the British High Commissioner for the Federation of Malaya at the time, to write this book. Templer was one of the pioneers of winning hearts and minds of potential supporters of guerillas, so he was probably keen on winning the hearts and minds of the British public as well. In the immediate aftermath of the Second World War guerilla warfare was probably novel when the recent war had been won by conventional battles and bombs. So the book sets out to be a survey of the Federation at the time, an explanation of how the war was fought and why the author and his backers considered it necessary to fight it to the end. 128 pages with 15 black and white photographs.
