Singapore, then a British colony, was considered a crucial strategic stronghold in Southeast Asia. On that day, Japanese troops launched a major assault on Singapore, breaching the defensive lines and rapidly advancing. The British and Commonwealth forces, vastly outnumbered and lacking in supplies and reinforcements, were unable to hold back the Japanese onslaught. <br><br> Printed by Seiko Printing Co., Ltd.
