Book Description Editions Didier Millet, Kuala Lumpur, 2010. Hardback. Condition: Mint. Dust Jacket Condition: Mint. First Edition. THE FIGHT FOR MALAYA The Jungle War of Maurice Cotterill. R. W. Holder. Editions Didier Millet, Kuala Lumpur. 2010 First Edition ISBN 9789814217200 196pp Hardback. This mint unread copy is bound in cloth covered boards with bright gilt titling to the spine, tight, white, bright and square. The unclipped dust wrapper is also in mint condition. Maurice Cottterill, an expatriate rubber planter, was the only Englishman to have lived in Malaya when the country was successively a part of the British Empire, occupied by the Japanese, designated a British colony, subject to a prolonged civil war and then an independent nation. He spent the years from 1942 to 1945 in the jungle, being one of the handful of refugees to survive betrayal, capture, starvation or disease. He was unhappy with Spencer Chapman's classic account of those years in The Jungle is Neutral because he knew certain incidents described in the book to be misreported, exaggerated or probably untrue. During his lifetime, he declined to write about his own experiences in the jungle or to make his enthralling record of those years available for publication. After reading Eleven Months in Malaya, which described the chaotic period following the sudden ending of the war in August 1945, Cotterill s daughter Philippa agreed that its author should use her father s diary to provide not just a gripping record of her father s courage and resource but also to examine the hardships inflicted on the inhabitants of Malaya during the years of Japanese occupation and the creation of a society which was to undergo further volatility, anguish and change during the long drawn-out conflict with the Communist insurgents. Published in 2007 and distributed only in Malaysia, The Fight for Malaya was seen by scholars and general readers there as both an incredibly readable and interesting adventure story but also as a fascinating insight, not just in what happened on Malaya but also . into the Japanese motivation and thought processes. A distinguished historian wrote to the author, I read (it) from cover to cover on the day of receipt and very greatly enjoyed it. Historians of Malaysia will be greatly in your dept for your contribution to the history of the war. With so many close ties between people in Malaysia and other Commonwealth countries, it is appropriate that this important and readable story should now be made available to a wider readership.
