Entertaining

An excellent glimpse of a part of history seldom written about - the fall of Singapore. The author cleverly weaves a tale of courage and romance taking the reader into the intimate world of military strategy and politics with all the lost chances and bad decisions that goes with it. A thoroughly good read.
