With Freedom to Singapore


OW Gilmour

Gilmour, a civil engineer who escaped Singapore in 1942, was part of both the British team planning for a return to the city in the final days of the Pacific war and also a senior member of the administration set up to take over from the Japanese. His account not only gives a graphic view of sorting out the mess that followed the Allied victory, but also speculates as to how the war was likely to give rise to a turbulent aftermath. 277 pages. For further details, please see the scanned contents page.
