Pregnable Fortress - A Study in Deception, Discord and Desertion

Author(s): Peter Elphick

Second World War

The fall of Singapore in 1942 was the largest capitulation in British military history, and Winston Churchill's "worst disaster". Churchill's promised enquiry was never instituted, and only in 1993 were many crucial official documents released into the public domain. The author of this book investigates these dcouments, meets the existing participants, and tells the story of the fall of Singapore in full.
