When the Japanese invade Burma in 1941 there were many British Army families living there. This is a story of the evacuation of these families and is told from the perspective of one 7 year old boy travelling with his mother and many other families from their home in Maymyo, near Mandalay. They travelled by road, train, steamer, Trek over the Naga Mountains, bus and eventually train to the relative safety of Calcutta. This was a 1,000 mile journey. The life of a soldier is fairly well known but little is understood of what the families go through in both peace time and during conflicts. This story is there to balance this understanding.

Item Description: Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from The Hill Tracts of Arakan The condition of wild tribes and the country inhabited by them has of necessity from time to time attracted the attention, not only of Government, but also of the general public. Although it may be open to question whether our rule and civilization in India have been duly appreciated by dwellers on the plains and inhabitants of cities, there cannot exist a doubt that England s policy generally towards the hill tribes living on her north-east frontier from Assam to Arakan has been beneficent and successful. In tracts where butchery, slavery, misrule, and disorder reigned supreme, raiding, with its attendant traffic in captives, has been stamped out, and order and good government have been inaugurated. The resources of the several hill tracts have been developed, and hill men have been taught that trade and agricultural industry are as attractive and as profitable as the barter of captives and slaves. Thus, following in the wake of the Cossyah, Jynteah, Naga, and other aboriginal tribes along our eastern border, the Arakan hill races are gradually being brought to order; internal raids and crime are repressed, and external raids reduced in magnitude. For so satisfactory a state of affairs it would be unsafe to predict permanence, for on our north and north-east frontier are many powerful and marauding tribes from time immemorial independent of the British power, who have ceased to harass our frontier only within the last few years, since the close of the Lushai campaign. The habitat of these tribes, noted on the map as a blank, undefined and unsurveyed, abuts on Upper Burma, and is populated by the powerful tribe of Shandoos or Pools.

Doch in jüngster Zeit deuten sich auch hier allmähliche Veränderungen an, die die indische Regierung unter Wahrung der Autonomie der Naga anstrebt. 510 gr. Bookseller Inventory # 21255

It s 1942 and Harry Flynn leaves behind the love of his life to journey into a world of tigers, elephants and Himalayan Mountains. Here he must take risks if he is to survive. He enlists to fight in the war expecting to find the thrill of danger and honor of military service. Instead of a fighting position, Harry is sent to the Forgotten Front in the Indian subcontinent as an ordinary supply officer. There, General Joseph Vinegar Joe Stilwell is constructing a road to nowhere through Japanese-occupied Burma. The general will do anything to get the road built In this exotic world with Naga headhunters, opium-smoking Kachin tribesmen, and marauders who scorn both life and death, Harry forges unlikely friendships. He is forced to obey orders that challenge his principles and is torn between being true to himself of no man at all. Eventually, not willing to let Uncle Sam needlessly condemn the road crew to death, he rebels. He tries to sabotage the road s progress where an all-black construction regiment is losing a man a mile due to disease and crumbling mountain slopes. Then a commanding officer spots his unconventional skills. Immediately he s transferred to America s first guerrilla-supported unit: Merrill s Marauders and later the Mars Task Force. Here, he must entrust his life to others. During a time when boys were forced to come of age on the battlefield, Harry must find what makes his life worth living or die. The lessons learned in World War II apply to all wars, where men walk away carrying unspeakable memories and lives that could have been haunt those that lived. Behind the Forgotten Front brings them all back to life and shows that history is about facts driven by passions and sometimes the mistakes of real people. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780991598410

Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In this book are gripping accounts of four refugee journeys which happened during the terrifying Japanese invasion of Burma 1941/42. Along with tens of thousands, both civilian and military, the writers of these stories were forced to escape to India, the only way out being to trek through dense jungle and over steep mountains in appalling conditions. Thousands did not survive. Josephine Chapman witnessed savage air raids and survived an exhausting journey. Dr Russell reluctantly left his hospital when all personnel were finally told to get out of Burma in April. Captain Gribble s superb descriptions of his work in the Burma Frontier Service give wonderful insights into the Kachin and Naga people.Sergeant Benjamin Katz stayed for months in a remote village and helped other refugees. Added is fascinating detail about the heroic rescue missions of the Indian Tea-Planters Association. Dr Russell s son had many records from a Refugee Administrator which he allowed to be used, creating a direct link to the remote places in Burma and India where these incredible scenes of drama and endurance unfolded over 70 years ago. These accounts are inspiring and unforgettable. They are four out of thousands of stories, many unwritten and unknown. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781785100444

Item Description: Mittal Publications, New Delhi, 2005. N.A. Book Condition: New. 23 cms. xxii, 254 p.,The dynamics of the politics of identity, ethnicity and self-determination seems to be at climax today be lying many ideologies who once thought that ethnic dynamism was a non-issue for the 20th and 21st Centuries. This is for the fact that many peoples and/or nations are still ?unrepresented? in the comity of the world-the United Nations Organisation (UNO) as equal partners. Through the UNO, the world for the first time has become a family of nations. Many nations have become independent from their so-called colonial maters. India is one of the States that is celebrating its fifty years of independence. However, there is yet another ugly face of the emergence of several independent States (viz., in multi-national States) that has not been well addressed. This is the case of the ?unrepresented nations/peoples? that have been arbitrarily annexed into the stronger and bigger newly formed independent States so that they remain as ?marginalised? nations in the then existing States system. nagas are said to be one of the peoples and/or nations who were arbitrarily annexed by India and Myanmar (erstwhile Burma). Today, the Nagas are living in two sovereign States as unhappy people. This book, The Nagas; Right to Self determination:. is a historical and holistic account of the Nagas struggle for their right to self-determination to be independent from India and Myanmar with special reference to India. This work thus mainly covers the Nagas? old way of life, the emergence of the Naga movement and the later developments till 1999 and the perceptions of the Nagas on self-determination. The author dates back into the remote Naga past traditions and articulates them to the development of the Modern Naga national movement. This ork is the outcome of a combination of an inter-disciplinary academic research and personal experiences as the author is a Naga himself and an active social worker. This book is perhaps the only exhaustive and holistic work on the Naga movement that has been furnished so far by any researcher and/or writer. This work, it is hoped, will be most helpful to scholars, policy makers, the Nagas themselves and persons interested in the Naga movement. The book will also be of equal importance to those involved in the area of conflict resolution/management/ethnic dynamism and so on. Bookseller Inventory # 252388

Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 252 x 198 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Mu, as a lost Pacific Ocean continent, was later popularized by James Churchward (1851-1936) in a series of books, beginning with Lost Continent of Mu, the Motherland of Man (1926), re-edited later as The Lost Continent Mu (1931). Other popular books in the series are The Children of Mu (1931), and The Sacred Symbols of Mu (1933). Churchward claimed that more than fifty years ago, while he was a soldier in India, he befriended a high-ranking temple priest who showed him a set of ancient sunburnt clay tablets, supposedly in a long lost Naga-Maya language which only two other people in India could read. Having mastered the language himself, Churchward found out that they originated from the place where [man] first appeared-Mu. The 1931 edition states that all matter of science in this work are based on translations of two sets of ancient tablets: the clay tables he read in India, and a collection 2,500 stone tablets that had been uncovered by William Niven in Mexico. p. 7 Churchward gave a vivid description of Mu as the home of an advanced civilization, the Naacal, which flourished between 50,000 and 12,000 years ago, was dominated by a white race, p. 48 and was superior in many respects to our own p. 17 At the time of its demise, about 12,000 years ago, Mu had 64,000,000 inhabitants and many large cities, and colonies in the other continents. Churchward claimed that the landmass of Mu was located in the Pacific Ocean, and stretched east-west from the Marianas to Easter Island, and north-south from Hawaii to Mangaia. He claimed that according to the creation myth he read in the Indian tablets, Mu had been lifted above sea level by the expansion of underground volcanic gases. Eventually Mu was completely obliterated in almost a single night p. 44: after a series of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the broken land fell into that great abyss of fire and was covered by fifty millions of square miles of water. p. 50 Churchward claimed that Mu was the common origin of the great civilizations of Egypt, Greece, Central America, India, Burma and others, including Easter Island, and was in particular the source of ancient megalithic architecture. As evidence for his claims, he pointed to symbols from throughout the world, in which he saw common themes of birds, the relation of the Earth and the sky, and especially the Sun. Churchward claims the king of Mu was Ra and he relates this to the Egyptian god of the sun, Ra, and the Rapanui word for Sun, ra a, which he incorrectly spells raa. [8]: p. 48 He claimed to have found symbols of the Sun in Egypt, Babylonia, Peru and all ancient lands and countries - it was a universal symbol. [8]: p. 138 Churchward attributed all megalithic art in Polynesia to the people of Mu. He claimed that symbols of the sun are found depicted on stones of Polynesian ruins, such as the stone hats (pukao) on top of the giant moai statues of Easter Island. Citing W.J. Johnson, Churchward describes the cylindrical hats as spheres that seem to show red in the distance, and asserts that they represent the Sun as Ra. p. 138 He also incorrectly claimed that some of them are made of red sandstone [8]: p. 89 which does not occur in the island. The platforms on which the statues rest (ahu) are described by Churchward as being platform-like accumulations of cut and dressed stone, which were supposedly left in their current positions awaiting shipment to some other part of the continent for the building of temples and palaces. p. 89 He also cites the pillars erected by the Maori of New Zealand as an example of this lost civilization s handiwork.: p. 158 In Churchward s view, the present-day Polynesians are not descendants of the dominant members of the lost civilization of Mu, responsible for these great works, but survivors of the cataclysm that adopted the first cannibalism and savagery in the world.

Item Description: Feedaread.com, United Kingdom, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In this book are gripping accounts of four refugee journeys which happened during the terrifying Japanese invasion of Burma 1941/42. Along with tens of thousands, both civilian and military, the writers of these stories were forced to escape to India, the only way out being to trek through dense jungle and over steep mountains in appalling conditions. Thousands did not survive. Josephine Chapman witnessed savage air raids and survived an exhausting journey. Dr Russell reluctantly left his hospital when all personnel were finally told to get out of Burma in April. Captain Gribble s superb descriptions of his work in the Burma Frontier Service give wonderful insights into the Kachin and Naga people.Sergeant Benjamin Katz stayed for months in a remote village and helped other refugees. Added is fascinating detail about the heroic rescue missions of the Indian Tea-Planters Association. Dr Russell s son had many records from a Refugee Administrator which he allowed to be used, creating a direct link to the remote places in Burma and India where these incredible scenes of drama and endurance unfolded over 70 years ago. These accounts are inspiring and unforgettable. They are four out of thousands of stories, many unwritten and unknown. Bookseller Inventory # AAV9781785100444

Item Description: Barbara Hawkins, 2014. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: It's 1942 and Harry Flynn leaves behind the love of his life to journey into a world of tigers, elephants and Himalayan Mountains. Here he must take risks if he is to survive. He enlists to fight in the war expecting to find the thrill of danger and honor of military service. Instead of a fighting position, Harry is sent to the Forgotten Front in the Indian subcontinent as an ordinary supply officer. There, General Joseph ?Vinegar Joe? Stilwell is constructing a ?road to nowhere? through Japanese-occupied Burma. The general will do anything to get the road built. In this exotic world with Naga headhunters, opium-smoking Kachin tribesmen, and marauders who scorn both life and death, Harry forges unlikely friendships. He's forced to obey orders that challenge his principles and is torn between being true to himself or ?no man at all.' Eventually, not willing to let Uncle Sam needlessly condemn the road crew to death, he rebels.He tries to sabotage the road's progress where an all-black construction regiment is losing a man a mile due to disease and crumbling mountain slopes. Then a commanding officer spots his unconventional skills. Immediately he's transferred to America's first guerrilla-supported unit: Merrill's Marauders and later the Mars Task Force. Here, he must entrust his life to others. During a time when boys were forced to come of age on the battlefield, Harry must find what makes his life worth living or die.The lessons learned in World War II apply to all wars, where men walk away carrying unspeakable memories and lives that ?could have been? haunt those that lived. Behind the Forgotten Front brings them all back to life and shows that history is about facts driven by passions and sometimes the mistakes of real people.
