Moon over Malaya
I've been reading about the actions of the 2nd battalion Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in Singapore Burning, including their use of jungle warfare tactics against the advancing Japanese. It's great platoon level wargaming scenario material and perfect for my CoC Japanese project. They even had a unit of Lanchester armoured cars!
As I wanted to look into this further, I was looking for additional reading material and turned up a digital edition of Moon over Malaya, which also includes a history of the Plymouth Argyles, a unit of Devonport based Royal Marines who were attached to the Argylls after the sinking of Force Z.
Very interesting stuff!
