About The Author

Brian P. Farrell is Deputy Head of the Department of History at the National University of Singapore, where he has been teaching military history since 1993. Farrell’s research interest is the military history of the British Empire. He has published more extensively on the defence and fall of Singapore than any other scholar, his main work being The Defence and Fall of Singapore 1940-1942, for which he drew extensively on Australian primary sources. Farrell also uses the ground as a primary source, has toured the battlefields of Malaya and Singapore extensively, and provided many of the photos and travel notes for this project from his own work.
