It is a memorial to the Police of all ranks and many bangsa, who risked and sometimes gave their lives for freedom.It includes comments on Chin Pengs My Side of History (2003) and the performance of the Malayan Government of those days, quoting extensively from official archives.Professor Anthony Short, the doyen of British historians who have written on the Malayan Emergency (1948-1960), said in his foreword to the first edition (2003), ... academic reviewers seldom live dangerously. Nor do they always know how it feels. This is real.If people still think a policemans lot is not a happy one, they would find in this book the reasons why that need not be true.

When the cause is sound and the goals set are doable, when morale is high and there is trust and confidence in leadership, a police force would happily carry out what it was trained to do. In an era of terrorism, such a force would be invaluable. Brian Stewarts book tells us why that can be so.Wang Gungwu, historian, Former Vice-Chancellor, The University of Hongkong
