British devices fought challenging at the Malayan mainland however the eastern confirmed better mobility, crafty and tactical superiority. Morale was once badly suffering from the lack of HMS Prince of Wales and Repulse to jap airplane on 19 December as they sought out enemy delivery. Panic set in as army and civilians withdrew south to Singapore. considered an impregnable fort, its defences opposed to land assaults have been shockingly poor. common Percival's management used to be at most sensible uninspired and at worst incompetent.
