Suez to Singapore
Suez to Singapore
By Cecil Brown
Random House, 1942, 545 pp

After reading this very forthright book the reader will conclude that the author must have inherited some of the characteristics of that other Brown known as "God's Angry Man," for he thunders mightily against stupidity and complacency in men who exercise authority, especially if they be censors. After making allowance for this, the reader will find that Mr. Brown, correspondent for the Columbia Broadcasting System, has a remarkably vivid and moving story to tell of events in Egypt, India and Malaya during 1941 and early 1942. Over half of the book concerns the disastrous Singapore campaign, on which the author sheds a lurid light.
