About This Book

After Singapore fell to the Japanese during World War II, on 15 February 1942, fighting continued in Java until the capitulation of the Dutch and British forces on 8 March. This relook at this period debunks some received wisdoms as it details the course of the air, sea and land strategies and battles which followed the Allied evacuation of Southern Sumatra. Archival photographs, official and personal records shed light on the parts played in February 1942 by the combined Allied forces in the Battle over West Java, the Battle of the Java Sea, and the final battles of Kalidjati and the Tjiater Pass. With sketch maps, archival photographs, bibliography and index.
