New Book by Lynette Silver

      Stuart - Lynette Silver (oz author of Sandakan - A Conspiracy of Silence) is writing a book about the Fall of Singapore. Given she is not known for mincing her words (eh Keith!), this could be interesting. Due for publication in August. I wonder if the dust will fly?

      "In 1995, following lengthy research into the fall of Singapore, she was appointed Official Historian to the Australian 8th Division Association.
      Her most recent book, Sandakan - A Conspiracy of Silence, is an expose on the loss of 2,500 POWs, many of them 8th Division soldiers, in British North Borneo." from
