No Question of Surrender: 3 Days Before The Fall


It is 12 February 1942 and the invaders have already reached Bukit Timah.

Enter the Battlebox as a member of the Straits Settlements Volunteer Corps, suddenly assigned to this bunker as the battle for Singapore draws near the city. As you receive your introduction to the inner workings of the secretive Fortress Command, let the staff – colonial and local – reveal how the war is really going. Discover the astounding mis-steps that charted our fall, and the brutal lessons that mapped out our future.

Whose war was it? Whose land is it?
