Author fought as a Royal Marine Commando in Malaya against the ethnic Chinese uprising.
The Malayan Emergency (Malay: Darurat Malaya) was a guerrilla war fought in the Federation of Malaya from 1948 until 1960. The conflict was between Commonwealth armed forces and pro independence fighters of the Malayan National Liberation Army (MNLA), the military wing of the Malayan Communist Party (MCP). The war was fought over attempts by communist forces to gain independence for Malaya from the British Empire and to establish a socialist economy. The fighting spanned both the colonial period and the creation of an independent Malaya (1957). Although it was referred to as "The Emergency" by colonial authorities, the MNLA referred to it as the "Anti-British National Liberation War".The conflict was called an "Emergency" by the British for insurance purposes, as London-based insurers would not have paid out in instances of civil style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14pt;">
