Jan 12 Submission by John Russell:
I have been working on a tactical map of the Battle of Hong Kong, which you can find here (PDF) along with a detailed timeline. This tactical map dates back to 1939 as the current military map of HK at the time. It was the same map used in December 1941. The graphics I superimposed give details in military terms and symbols, and the timelines of the battle on the island between 18 and 25 December 1941. It is a busy map, but in those 8 days, there was a lot of violent action occurring at a fast pace. The subject tactical map amplifies the common map that we are most familiar with, which is also included in the document.
An excellent book which supports the map is “Not the Slightest Chance (The Defence of Hong Kong, 1941)” by Tony Banham.  I highly recommend it.
