About the book

The book describes Cecil Brown’s experiences as a war-time correspondent, a job which takes him from the Middle East to Singapore in time to see the fall of Singapore and Malaya.

From dust jacket:

Cecil Brown’s story of the sinking of the Repulse and the Prince of Wales and his broadcasts from doomed Singapore have made him world famous. His book has the same breathless quality of excitement, honest and accuracy. He indulges in no rhetorical flights, but when he tells his first-hand story of the fight against Rommel’s tanks n the desert, you feel the sand choking you and blinding your eyes; when he describes the guerrilla warfare in Malaya, the suffocating heat and mystery of the jungle close down about you like a vise.

Suez to Singapore will make crystal clear to you the true scope of the task that lies ahead of us in this people’s war.
