Through Fog & Fire - The Battle for Singapore, 1942™
A War Trail by Changi Museum

"We were totally blown away by the guide's enthusiasm for his topic, his indepth knowledge and easy recall, his wonderfully personalised stories and the overall enormity of the tragedy of the attack on Singapore."
- Robin Greenfield, New Zealand

"I have been on many 'tours and walks' around the world but it was refreshing to be with a guide who didn't attempt to trivialise or abbreviate historical fact on the assumption that the average tourist has a short attention span! This, allied with the guide's deep level of knowledge and anecdotal personalisation, made it fascinating and memorable."
- Ian Hampton, UK

Tour Synopsis
Intricate strategies, subtle plots, great follies, explosive action - we take you through the intense fire of battle and the fog of war that led to Singapore's fall in WWII. Called 'Gibraltar of the East'. Singapore fell in 8 days. Is it really the story of 'a navy that never was, of defenders in the dark and of guns pointed in the wrong direction'? Should Percival really bear the brunt of it all? Get to know them - the British, Australian, Indian and Malayan defenders and uncover the realities shrouded in seductive myths and deceptive propaganda.
