This book provides a sophisticated summary of up-to-date knowledge on the Fall of Singapore, including the critical tensions between Churchill and local commanders. A focus on the role of Churchill, and on his understanding of the guns and Singapore's fortifications, makes the Fortress central to understanding why and how Singapore fell as it did. The book includes a range of quotations that give the flavour of the time and the essence of the debates. No other book allows the reader to get a clear overview of the base, the plans, the campaign, the guns and the remaining heritage, all in one place.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'... a major and original contribution to what the author's call the "never-ending post-mortem" destined to continue not simply for want of an authoritative inquiry conducted at the time but more especially with ever-changing perspectives'.

A. J. Stockwell (Royal Holloway, University of London), The Journal of Imperial and Commonwealth History
