New release: The Surrender of Singapore – Three Years of Hell by Stephen Wynn.

Singapore fell to the Japanese in 1942 and was then controlled by them for the next three years, a time in which Chinese civilians and Commonwealth soldiers were murdered at their hands, in such incidents as the Sook Ching massacre and the Burma Railway death march.

Included in this account is one man’s never before told story of his time as a PoW in Changi prison. The book explores how he miraculously survived the horrors of working on the Burma railway, only to be sent back to Changi, and reveals how the Japanese authorities held letters that his wife sent him for three years.

Winston Churchill decided against a public enquiry into the circumstances surrounding the fall of Singapore, and no subsequent British Government has seen fit to change that decision. This remarkable book seeks to remedy that by using an array of sources to tell the fascinating and largely forgotten story of the fall of Singapore.

Special mention: The Jihadist Threat

The Jihadist Threat – The Re-conquest of the West? by Paul Moorcraft.

Paul Moorcraft’s The Jihadist Threat (2015) was referenced by Lord Nazir Ahmed in the House of Lords last week. Moorcraft was the only expert quoted regarding the British government’s policy failure in Libya and the negative impact of the overthrow of Colonel Gaddafi. Watch the debate via parliamentlive.tv.

About the book: The Jihadist Threat examines the international and domestic threats to the West from Jihadism. It joins the dots in the Middle East, Asia and Africa and explains what it means for the home front, mainly Britain but also continental Europe and the USA. After briefly tracing the origins of Jihadism from the time of the Prophet, The Jihadist Threat analyses the fall-out from the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and how far these fuelled the rise of the self-styled Islamic State and other terror groups.

Professor Paul Moorcraft, currently the Director of the Centre for Foreign Policy Analysis, London, has long worked at the heart of the British security establishment and has operated as a war correspondent in over thirty conflict zones since Afghanistan in the 1980s, often alongside frontline Jihadists. Arguably no-one is better qualified to write on this subject and his knowledge coupled with forthright views cannot be ignored.

NHS at 70 – can you help?
As next year marks the 70th anniversary of the National Health Service, Pen and Sword will be publishing a title to tell the story of the service in the words of the people who used it. We would like to encourage anyone with memories of the NHS that they would like to contribute to contact us. These could be memories of first using the NHS or how it made a difference in their lives. We’re interested in memories from all periods, right from the start in 1948 to the present day. These can be stories or anecdotes, images or anything interesting or humorous they experienced. No story is too long or too short. Please email NHSat70@gmail.com with anything you think might be useful.
