Red Star over Malaya is factual, well written and engages the reader ( especially if you're Malaysian) with facts, facts and more facts interspersed with anecdotes about places we all know. For instance,one of the anecdotes features Batu Caves prominently as the place where a MPAJ( Malayan People's Anti Japanese) traitor named Lai Tak sold out his entire committee and dealt a huge blow to the resistance. It is Amazing that Lai Tak kept on betraying his comrades and became a powerful presence in the anti Japanese party, although he was selling his comrades out to the Japanese to be killed- not even the returning British could detect his treachery.Such stories abound in this book written by Cheah Boon Kheng- very well researched and well balanced.It focuses on the conflict between the Chinese MPAJ ( later MCP) and the Malays immediately after the Japanese surrender..A very worthwhile and informative read for those who want to know history...
