On his return to England after the war, General Percival was requested to provide a report on the war in Malaya and Singapore, Most of his report was published in Hansard. In 1948 he was induced to have the bulk of his report published. And a limited number of copies were published by Eyre& Spottiswood. I found a rough copy in Singapore in 1973. Since 1980 onwards I have tried to contact the exors of Eyre Spottiswood without success. I feel that this is the most honest report ever published, so in order to allow those hundreds of armchair theorists and historians among us, instead of publishing the book and making a profit. The best thing would be to place it on the web so that everyone interested in the war in the Pacific can read, the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth from the words and mind of a very honest man, A man who took the blame for the mistakes of others.
