The Longest Odds: Canadians in Hong Kong 1941

Kevin Baker, Dr; Kanopy (Firm)
Format

Summary
When Japan entered the Second World War in 1941, the British suffered a catastrophic defeat in Malaya and Singapore. Those events overshadowed the heroic defence of another British colony - Hong Kong. A garrison largely composed of Canadian troops - the Winnipeg Grenadiers and the Royal Rifles of Canada - outnumbered four to one, without hope of relief, held off the Japanese for two weeks. It was one of the heroic defences of history.
