Japanese Monographs (incomplete but hardcopies can be obtained through interlibrary loan)
http://www.ibiblio.org/pha/monos/


Malaya/Singapore Campaign

My most useful resource so far...
http://cat.lib.utk.edu:4525/F/


My suggestion - Instead of cluttering this thread with thanks and kudos....just add additional sites if you have them and make the thread functional.

Not 100% sure if this is appropriate as the site is an online bookstore. It specializes in softcopies of military history titles, including many long out of print and impossible to get in hard copy. I've purchased from them frequently and can recommend them.
