Moon over Malaya

What really happened in Singapore and Malaya during the dark days of December 1941-February 1942? Britain's worst military disaster is looked at here in a new light using first hand accounts from the men on the ground. Their story is told for the first time and is conclusive proof that some of the British soldiers did fight the enemy and, in fact, held them back for long enough to enable many to escape from Singapore to fight another day. The accusation that the brit soldiers in Malaya did not fight is put in its proper context for the first time. Moon over Malaya is the true story of two of the most famous regiments in Britain, the 2nd Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders and of their compatriots, the Royal Marines, who fought side by side against the Japanese invaders.
