Winston Churchill Should Be Made Responsible For The Fall Of Singapore
Some historical writings have recently pointed to Winston Churchill, the Prime Minister of Great Britain, as being responsible for the fall of Singapore.
Are you for or against this motion?
1. Remember the factors that were discusssed for the fall of Singapore.
2. You can bring in other factors to help support your stand or refute others.
3. All arguments need to be substantiated with evidences.
Churchill was responsible to the extent that he was a racist as exemplified by his statement that
he was not going to see the dismantling of the british empire by the likes of "a brown skinned
fakir" when Ghandi was involved in India's independence. Hence his low opinion of " the slant eyed
yellow skinned Japs" in being able to beat the numerically more forces in singapore.
Did you just type this out just for your homework? Evidently Winston Churchill didn't expect the
local Allied leaders to surrender since they greatly outnumber the Japanese and he kinda explicitly
mentioned that Singapore was vital to the image of the British empire,.
