The "Tanaka Memorial", a document that mapped out japan's imperial expansion, shocked the world when it was exposed. But Britain, The US and other major Western powers appareently disregarded it, let alone took any precautionary and defensive measures. In 1941, the japanese military launched its attacks southwards from China and took over malaya from the British colonial government who had been entrenched there for more than a century. And so began a time of darkness and despair that would last three years and eight months. Innocent lives were lost and blood ran freely.
Featuring 300 war time pictures interspersed with essays, interviews and excerpts from wartime docunments, ETERNAL VIGILANCE provides a vivid portrayal of life in Singapore before and after the japanese Occupation. For readers today, this book is a grim reminder to remain eternally vigilant, to guard our heritage and nationhood.
