Hi all,

I'm currently reading "Japan's Greatest Victory, Britain's Worst Defeat: Capture and Fall of Singapore, 1942" by Masanobu Tsuji its a really good read! Is there anything similar about the Japanese invasions of the other Far East locations, Philippines, Wake, stuff like that.


Cheers

George

And apropos of nothing, IIRC 'Tesuji' is also the term for the clever move in a game of Go.

The US Army Center of Military History have a few online references, especially The Fall of the Phillipines, loads of detail but may be a bit dated.

And here is the US Marine Corps history of the Defence of Wake.
