Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The true story of the "the greatest defeat and largest capitulation" in British military history. The Fall of Singapore on February 15, 1942 is a military disaster of enduring fascination. For the 60th anniversary of the liberation of the island, Peter Thompson tells the explosive story of the Malayan campaign, the siege of Singapore, the ignominious surrender to a much smaller Japanese force, and the Japanese occupation through the eyes of those who were there—the soldiers of all nationalities and members of Singapore's beleaguered population.

Synopsis:

The true story of the greatest catastrophe of World War II, that occurred on 15th February 1942.

About the Author

Peter Thompson was a Fleet Street journalist for 20 years, deputy editor of the Daily Mirror, editor of the Sunday Mirror and a director of Mirror Group Newspapers. He lives in London where he runs Mayfair News Service.
