Between 2 Oceans
A Military History of SingaporeeBook - 2011
Many books have been written about Singapore's much vaunted position as a crucial maritime centre along the East-West trading route, but one aspect of its history-the military perspective-has, for the most part, escaped serious scholarly attention. Between Two Oceans plugs this historical gap. Drawing on an impressive range of archaeological and historical sources gleaned from research and documents in Britain, India, Singapore, United States and Australia, the book traces the geo-strategic development of Singapore from its first settlement in the thirteenth century through the turbulent phase.
