The End of the War commemorates the end of the Second World War in Singapore and Malaya against the backdrop of the Japanese surrender on 12 September 1945. This fascinating book unveils much of the mystery shrouding some of the lesser-known but crucial facts and events leading up to the final days of the Japanese Occupation and the end of the war in Singapore and Malaya. The revelation of these secrets will examine the fate of the Japanese and local resistance movements in Singapore as well as how the locals reacted to the return of the British and freedom from years of tyranny. It will also outline and explain in detail, places that still exist in Singapore that are of great significance to the end of the War and liberation in Singapore. Heavily illustrated with many pictures never before published on the end of the war and with extensive research from recently declassified private archives in the UK and Singapore, the book will give readers a greater insight into what it was like to be liberated in Singapore at the end of the Second World War
