This title covers the Singapore fortifications from the first Victorian efforts though the belated planning and construction efforts of the 1930s. The discussions of the many plans of the 1920s and 1930s are especially interesting. Several maps showing the locations of the batteries and fortifications at various times are included. An appendix describes the armament history of every fortification and battery. There is also some information on the performance of the various guns. The Japanese attack on Singapore island in February 1942 is also described.
