Singapore was an impregnable fortress for Australia.
The Singapore Strategy involved the defence of Australia prior to and during World War II by fortifying Singapore. However, ultimately there was insufficient defensive power to prevent the fall of Singapore. Australia lacked suitable strategy despite warnings that, should Singapore fall to the Japanese (which it did), there would be no guarantee of sufficient naval power from Britain to defend Australia. Australia's strategy was supposed to be gradually building its naval defence.
Australia had always relied upon England to come to its defence. England was the "Mother Country", the founder of Australia, and one of its chief allies. However, during World War II, England's power base was eroded with the fall of Singapore to the Japanese, and its morale eroded badly. It was busy engaging in war with Germany on the other side of the world, and defending its own turf; thus it did not have the resources to come to Australia's aid when Singapore fell to the Japanese. This is why Australia then turned to the USA.
Singapore is in South-East Asia sandwiched between Malaysia,Indonesia and probably the Philippines. The closest Caucasian country is Australia,in fact,many actually have stopovers in Singapore before going to the land down under. Singapore was occupied by the Japanese during World War II.During that time it was colonised by the British.Singapore suffered alot just like any other war victims.Speaking of which,there should be more female rulers,then this world would have everlasting peace!!!!
During World War 2, the Australians were part of the Allies, fighting alongside Britain in the battle of Singapore. The port of Singapore was often used by the Australians for refuelling of warship, warplanes and such, therefore Singapore was also very important to the Australians. Surrendering Singapore to the Japanese was just like surrendering one of their most vital ports for the war to the Axis. Singapore was also a very important and easily accessible port for the Allies near South East Asia. Therefore, it can be seen that this loss was devastating to Australia - politically, economically and for the Australians' morale - as well as Allies fighting in the region. It also meant that Australia had to turn to the USA for assistance as the Japanese encroached, leading to the Battle of the Coral Sea.
Japan wanted to get a better position to take countries like Australia. Singapore was a perfect spot for such an attack. Singapore was a very important port during 1893 to the Start of World War 2, Japanese wanted to seize it to secure trade routes, main reason is to make it easier for them to invade other countries, another reason is because they wanted secure trade routes for them to earn money from trades and taxes.
