Colonel Sempill - The Spy that helped the Japanese Empire

Pretty interesting stuff that come out of this documentary. It seems, the British has contributed to the might of the Japanese Empire. After 8 decades, the Official Secrets Files were open for scrutiny and one Colonel Sempill stood out as a key player in the making of the Japanese Empire. Most notably the secrets of the Japaanese aircraft carrier. Do watch the gripping documentary and it'll soon make sense why the British suffered a horrible defeat in Malaya and Singapore.
