Item Description: Jitts & Co, Singapore, 1977. Soft Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. 3rd Edition Reprint. 202 indexed pages including b/w illustrations. The author was born in lpoh, the centre of Malaya’s richest tin district. He was teaching in an English school in Singapore when the Japanese overran Malaya. During the Occupation, he tried his hand at all manner of jobs, finally joining the Culture and Economics Research Institute in lpoh. While there, the idea of writing this book germinated. After the Liberation he was a teacher until his secondment to the Government Information Services. He worked as a State Information Officer in Perak and Pahang before becoming Press Attache in the Malayan High Commission in Canberra in 1963. For four and a half years after his retirement from Government service in 1965 he was the general manager of a bank in Kuala Lumpur. A keen sportsman, he was three times Malayan Tennis Champion and has represented Malaya in Shanghai & Batavia. Now he devotes his time entirely to writing. He is the author of two other books: Maraiee and The Grand Illusion. What did the Conquerors do to Malaya? What was the 'NEW ORDEP' like? What did ‘Co-prosperity’ mean? What was the Secret of Japan's military strength? How did the Malayan people respond to Japanese rule? What went on politically, economically and socially in Occupied Malaya? There is a name in the inside front cover. Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # 056621

Item Description: JItts & Co, Singapore, 1946. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very good overall. Harrowing account of the Japanese occupation of Malaya, written in secret by Onn during the occupation: "This is an unbiased record of its [Malaya's] trials and tribulations. It deals with the historic lacuna from the 8th. of December, 1941, when disintegration first set in, to the 5th. of September, 1945, when British re-establishment first began". Onn writes harshly of the British and Australians actions: "In sharp contrast to the fanatical ferocity of the Japanese fighting spirit, the British and Australian forces in Malaya, were shaky and insipid. The "Aussies" complained that they were let down by the British, while the "Tommies" retaliated that "the men from down under" were shirkers and equally disappointing". (p9) But he also blames the local population for a lack of "national consciousness", saying "There was no such thing as defending Malaya to the last man". (p6). 8vo, 208pp, appendices, map, index. Title in black on off white spine. Covers dusty, spine dusty & chipped, price $5.00 base of spine. Internally very good. Bookseller Inventory # 17335
