    I have not looked on this website for Malaya, so with Charley's post I looked for some articles on a mainly US website concerned with 'Small Wars'. Here are a selection of some of the articles there (not in priority order):

    Chin Peng The leader of the insurgency
    Malaya: The Myth of Hearts and Minds | Small Wars Journal
    https://smallwarsjournal.com/blog/journal/docs-temp/674-manea.pdf An interview with Karl Hack
    Algeria and Malaya: A Tale of Two Distinct and Dramatically Different Counterinsurgency Campaigns | Small Wars Journal

    Yes, there's some good stuff there.

    I've posted a fair smattering of material on Malaya mainly the early stage ('48-'53) as my grandfather was there with the Royal Artillery.

    I'm always on the lookout for specifics about operations or life around Tampin and Gemas (Negri Sembilan) at this time. Most of what I've gleaned has come from accounts of men with the Green Howards and 26 Field Regt R.A. (to which 54-bty and 93-bty from 25 Fd Regt in Hong Kong were successively attached).
