Description - Hostages to Fortune by Arthur Nicholson

When the British battleship HMS Prince of Wales and the battle cruiser HMS Repulse were sunk by Japanese bombers on 10 December 1941, Winston Churchill is on record as having said 'In all the war I never received a more direct shock'. Their loss led to the fall of Singapore to the Japanese and the end of British supremacy in the Far East.
