WarHistorySites.com is managed and operated by Holiday Tours & Travel Sdn Bhd (HTT) in collaboration with the War History Institute (WHI). HTT is Malaysia’s largest travel management company while the WHI is a think tank that performs research on war-related historical sites and past war events. Both HTT and WHI share a common goal in advocating the preservation of war-related historical sites by promoting military history tourism. This is an ongoing project where we will continue to add more sites as they are discovered. The WarHistorySites.com seek to work with all battlefield guides, military historians and history buff to promote military history tourism.
Welcome to the War History Sites! The aim of the website is to provide information on historical sites in relation to the Malayan Campaign and Malayan Emergency. This website will also contain military history tours that will be conducted by experienced Battlefield Guides that will share their knowledge on the historical background of each site.
Our biggest event for 2019 is the Military History Conference and Tour that will be held from 10th August – 18th August 2019. The theme of the event is called “Malaya at War”. We believe that this will be the first Military History Conference in Asia and we are proud that Malaysia will be hosting it.
The Military History Conference will be held from 10th August till 11th August 2019. The theme for the Conference is called “Malaya at War – Remembering the Malayan Campaign and Malayan Emergency”. The Conference will feature distinguished speakers such as Rear Admiral (R) Guy Griffiths, AO, DSO, DSC, who served on board the HMS Repulse that was sunk by the Japanese aircraft on the 10th December 1941 and Rear Admiral (R) Tan Sri K. Thanabalasingam who was the first Malaysian to be appointed as the Chief of the Royal Malaysian Navy. For the Malayan Emergency, we have the Commissioner of Police (R) Tan Sri J J Raj Jr, who was the OCPD of the Pagoh District when the Bukit Kepong tragedy occurred. Tan Sri J J Raj Jr was one of the last people to have visited the Bukit Kepong Police Station and met Sgt Jamil Mohd Shah, hours before the Station was attacked by the Communist Terrorists. The Conference is for one and a half days with a full day dedicated to the Malayan Campaign and another half day to the Malayan Emergency. It will be a memorable Conference.
For participants who can’t get enough of military history and want to have a personal experience of “seeing it and being there”, a military history tour called “The Malaya at War History Tour” will take place the following day. The military history tour will take the participants across 5 different states with an optional tour to Kota Bharu to view the first landing site of the Imperial Japanese Army. The tour will run from 12th August till 18th August 2019 with an optional tour to Kota Bharu from 19th August till 20th August 2019. Amongst the sites that we will be visiting will be Parit Sulong where the infamous massacre took place, Green Ridge where the fierce Battle of Kampar was fought and the home of Malayan heroine Sybil Kartigasu which will be a rare treat as it is now a private property and special permission has been obtained to visit the home.
