Shenton of Singapore:
Governor and Prisoner of War
Although Shenton, Governor of Singapore at the time of the fall of the city to the Japanese, was an experienced civil servant and had been at his post for nearly ten years, that counted for little in the heat of battle. This book, based on the former Governor's private papers details how his views were sidelined by the military so that he became a scapegoat for defeat. Unlike many senior military officers he allowed himself to be taken prisoner by the Japanese, but survived to set the record straight.
