Leo Cooper / Secker & Warburg, London - first edition, 1984. hardcover, 9 1/2" x 6 1/4", with dust jacket. Slight lean to spine. Ours is an ex-library copy in transparent protective covering, with usual stamps, stickers, etc. Barcode excised from ffep. GOOD book in GOOD price-clipped dust jacket. Black cloth-bound boards with gold type to spine, 31 b&w photographs, map [Singapore], bibliography, index. Sir Shenton Thomas was (British) Governor of Singapore when, in 1942, it was surrended to the Japanese; he and his wife were then taken into captivity. After his release he became the scapegoat for the inadequacies of others, and his attempts to straighten out the record were ignored. This book throws new light on those terrible events, and there emerges from this fine biography a story of great interest to those who lived through or study this period of history. Much of the material is based on Sir Shenton's private papers & diaries.
