Abstract
 
Description
The Japanese occupation of Singapore lasted for a short period but its scars remain deeply etched in the minds of those who lived through it. Over 54 years have lapsed since the fall of Singapore, yet many older Singaporeans will remember vividly the brutalities meted out by the Japanese soldiers. Younger generations of Singaporeans who have grown up in a safe and secure environment over the past 30 years will find it difficult to comprehend or have a feel for the hardships of war. Nor will they really understand the meaning of deprivation, food shortages and a total loss of freedom. This book will bridge this experience gap. Features: A pictorial and oral testimony of one of history's most traumatic chapters; Painstakingly compiled through extensive research from survivors of the war - both locals and wartime military officials; Illustrated on every page with numerous photographs, artefacts and paraphernalia which will create a deeper understanding and feel of the terror of the war; Evokes among the older Singaporeans a sense of familiarity, with the scenes depicted in the photographs and/or events described in the documents; A fresh insight for the young to understanding the value of hardships and tribulations Singapore had undergone as an occupied country; Includes an informative bibliography for further research. - from Amzon
