“The PRIDE And The ANGUISH” The Last Days of Singapore. By Douglas Reeman. (Fiction) In 1940, they called it the “Gibraltar of the Far East” ––a British rock that could not be taken. But suddenly, in a lightning blow, Singapore is defeated by the Japanese. Call it incompetence or call it false pride, It doesn’t really matter. The warplanes of the Japanese Rising Sun commanded the skies… and two officers on a battered gunboat are all this is left of England’s Empire in the Far East. They were simply out-numbered and out-manned. Paperback edition, no photos, maps or index.
