The Men Who Lost Singapore, 1938-1942
The fall of Singapore to the Japanese Army in 1942 is widely acknowledged to have been one of the worst defeats suffered by the UK in its history. The British defeat has naturally normally been seen as a failure of the British armed forces, but here McCrum examines the contribution of the British colonial administration to the cataclysmic events. The civilian officials, according to the author, brought little credit to themselves. 265 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
