9780330480659: The Imperial War Museum Book of the War in Burma 1942-1945 (Pan Grand Strategy Series)

The campaign in Burma was the longest and biggest ground war fought by the British and Americans against the Japanese. Including 1000 mile-long retreats and the great Allied victory at Kohima-Imphal, Burma brought the Allies a wealth of incomparably bitter combat experiences. Using the Imperial War Museum's archives, Major General Julian Thompson provides a gripping and unforgettable picture of what it was like to fight in this extraordinary conflict.

Review:

"An engrossing and authoritative account of that still neglected campaign. Slim was one of our greatest generals, a soldier's soldier, and Kohima and Imphal were great, unsung victories. Thompson is the perfect judge and author" Spectator.
