    1. Gripping first hand account of the Singapore Mutiny. The Browns while displaying a certain colonial and orientalist mindset, were keen observers and reading this account will give you a better idea of the fears of the European Community as well as a better understanding of the actual military operations conducted during the Singapore Mutiny.It's a short book and a easy read, you should pick it up if you can.

    2. The book was pretty boring actually. And i must add that I am a big fan of memoirs (historical/war) and I am usually fascinated by book like this. However, this book was written too plainly and did not have much content or any highlights as compared to the other memoirs i read. But to be fair, this memoir was written more as a personal one for the authors' daughter and not really for commercial purpose so perhaps that's why.
