Kill The Tiger
In the last few months of 1944 a group of British and Australian commandos set off on the biggest behind-the-lines operation of the Pacific War. Their mission: to devastate Singapore Harbour by destroying the Japanese ships at anchor. Operation Rimau was designed as a body blow to the Japanese but it ended in disaster. This gripping narrative tells what happened to the Rimau commandos in their courageous fight against their Japanese pursuers in the South China Sea. It names the men who betrayed them in their hour of need and uncovers the political chicanery that hid the true story for years to come.
