Here, at last, is the truth — told vividly and often very intimately through the personal experiences of men and women who were there, on the spot — of Britain’s most crushing military disaster. This was the Malayan Campaign in the Far East, 1941-1942. It ended, incredibly, after only seventy days of fighting, with the humiliating surrender of that long-boasted ‘impregnable British citadel, Fortress Singapore. At the very hour of disaster, the garrison actually still outnumbered the besiegers.”
