Catastrophe struck the British and Commonwealth forces in Malaya and Singapore in early 1942 as Japanese troops staged amphibious landings and also invaded from the north through mountains, swamps and jungles that the British thought were “impassable”. They were impassable – to the British defence planners! But not to the Japanese. Within a week, the whole of Malaya and Singapore were occupied and Lt. General Percival and his officers were forced to surrender (cover illustration).
