5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Frasier on March 30, 2002
Format: Paperback
The book succintly compiles a plethora of information into a easily understood and accessible trove for the average readers who are keen on the military capabilities of the SAF.
While it seems that it has revealed much of the hitherto obscure information of the SAF, it must be noted that this is probably just the tip of the iceberg of the true might of the SAF.
I enjoyed the book thoroughly and have been constantly referring back to it for more information after the first read.

Format: Paperback
Tim Huxley book, Defending the Lion City is a well written and detailed analysis of the Singaporean Armed Forces. Huxley begins by proving the reader with the history of the SAF, following Singapore independence to its break from Malaysia. Huxley then examine all three branches in fairly great depth as well as Singapore's likely strategic environment. All in all, a excellent book and a must for anyone interested in the Singaporean Armed Forces.

I found this book to be very informative. It gave a great history of the Singapore military and is very relevant to today's situation. Good, solid introduction to the Singapore Armed Forces. I recommend it.

Excellent read, though dated, it provides insight on the strategies adopted by Singapore to meet changing demands in defence and deterrence.
