Abstract

This book provides the reader with the information - historiography, facts, maps, statistics - most essential if they are to decide for themselves whether or not Singapore need have fallen in 1942. It covers everything from prewar planning to postwar memory, and especially shows how Churchill's conception of the island as a fortress impacted on planning.
