This account deals with an important chapter in the history of the region and in the part played by air power in helping to bring it to a successful conclusion. The book was written 20 years ago for official purposes only, but is only now being published for the first time. The author had free access to offical and classified documents, some of which will not have survived, so the book itself must now serve as the only authority for many of the sources which it uses. The Malayan Emergency lasted 12 years and at its height was occupying a quarter of a million men. This book concentrates on the air aspects of the campaign. The circumstances which unfolded in Malaya were reflected in many other countries of the region and for most of them their subsequent history has not been happy. Only in the Malaysian peninsula is the story more heartening.
