Across 15 chapters, professors of history and military history experts present their analyses and impressions about the Fall of Singapore in 1942, which was even described by Winston Churchill himself as “the greatest disaster in British military history”. Discussed at length is the Malayan Campaign and the “Singapore Strategy”, with problems and events related to the pre-war period as well as the conduct of the campaign itself. Highlights include extensive discussions on the reasons for Japanese success and British failure as well as Ground Zero perspectives from Japanese soldiers fighting on the island and civilians facing evacuation. What follows is a more complete and comprehensive picture painted of this turbulent period in Singapore’s history.
