Booksybooks. an online bookshop.

What I hope from this little venture is to make it easier for people who loves books and bargains to surf through & shop for cheap books online.
My intent is to spread these books around and reinvest their values into new readers.

The books are second-hand of course and comes with faults here and there. But I feel that gives them character. Personally, I love wondering where these books come from and who has read them before. I hope you will come to feel the same way too...

Singapore: The Pregnable Fortress by Peter Elphick

Category: Non-fiction - Historical
Type: Paperback
Condition: Yellowed cover and pages
Price: RM15

The fall of Singapore in February 1942 was the largest capitulation in British military history, and Winston Churchill's 'worst disaster'. Only in 1993 were many crucial official documents released which paint the full picture.

Singapore: The Pregnable Fortress presents the full horror of the fall of Singapore. It goes beyond the documents to surviving participants who describe the conditions of the time: the attitudes and actions of government, the personalities of the leaders and the experiences of politicians, diplomats and servicemen. Nor does it neglect sources, two of which confirm how close the daring Japanese invasion of Malaya came to its own disaster.
