Summary
British Prime Minister Winston Churchill called the ignominious fall of Singapore to the Japanese in early 1942 the "worst disaster" and "largest capitulation" in British history. In just seven days the "Impregnable Fortress" had fallen. This classic program incorporates authentic WWII archival film footage and accounts from soldiers on both sides of the battleline on Singapore.
