The Civil Defence of Malaya:
A Narrative of the Part Taken by the Civilian Population of the Country in the Japanese Invasion
George Maxwell (compiler)
This is not an account of the British military operations during the Japanese invasion of Malaya from 1941 to 1942, but rather an account of the role played by organised civil defence at the time. From 1940 onwards it was compulsory for all British males in the colony to be part of the force, while anyone else was welcome to volunteer. The narrative is based on the accounts of civilians who managed to escape the conflict before the fall of Singapore. 127 pages with a fold out map. For further details, please see the scanned contents page. Good Hardback in a Fair Dust Jacket.

Condition: The dust jacket, though still in tact, is a bit ragged. The cover has a bit of fading along the top edge and corner where it's lost the protection of the jacket. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is mild tanning throughout.
