Illusionary Fortress: Singapore 1942

Illusionary Fortress: Singapore 1942

Watermarked PDF

Having fought their way down the Malay peninsula, the three exhausted divisions of the Imperial Japanese army are now at the end of their tenuous logistics chain and must make one final desperate effort for the glory of the emperor.

Facing off against them are the British Empire's battered army, desperately holding out on Singapore island, the "Gibraltar of the Far East"

Historically the loss of Singapore was the worst defeat of British arms in World War Two and resulted in a humanitarian tragedy for the soldiers gathered from across the Commonwealth captured there.

The impregnable fortress of British Imperial power in the Far East proved to be an illusion,  Churchill's "battleship without a keel".

Note; This game focuses exclusively on the battle for Singapore Island.  Unlike other games on the campaign, the island comprises almost the entire map rather than a few hexes in one corner.

Product Information
File Size:
18.06 MB
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
