The years 1948 to 1960 were turbulent ones for Malaya. Communist terrorists threw the land into upheaval. When the Emergency ended, a Democratic system arose out of its ashes.
What really went on during this period?
This book is seen as an account of the Emergency as seen through the eyes of a former Police Lieutenant. Containing largely anecdotes, the book looks at how those involved coped with the often-dangerous situations.
