Description

This is Singapore's war history - well-researched and explained in an exciting and insightful way! Join us as we debunk myths and slice through deceptive propaganda. If you enjoy explosive action, subterfuge, and intense drama, this tour is a must-do! Find out why Singapore, touted as the "Gibraltar of the East," fell like a pack of cards during World War II.

Intricate strategies, subtle plots, great follies, explosive action - we take you through the intense fire of battle and the fog of war that led to Singapore's fall during WWII. Called "Gibraltar of the East," Singapore fell in just 8 days.

Is it really the story of "a navy that never was, of defenders in the dark and of guns pointed in the wrong direction?" Should Percival really bear the brunt of it all? Get to know the British, Australian, Indian and Malayan defenders and uncover the realities shrouded in seductive myths and deceptive propaganda.
