9780815410225: Defeat Into Victory: Battling Japan in Burma and India, 1942-1945

Field Marshal Viscount Slim (1891-1970) led shattered British forces from Burma to India in one of the lesser-known but more nightmarish retreats of World War II. He then restored his army's fighting capabilities and morale with virtually no support from home and counterattacked. His army's slaughter of Japanese troops ultimately liberated India and Burma.

The first edition of Defeat Into Victory , published in 1956, was an immediate sensation selling 20,000 copies within a few days. This is an updated version with a new introduction by David W. Hogan Jr.

About the Author:

William Joseph Slim, first Viscount, was born in 1891. He took a commission in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment and served in the Middle East, India and Burma, reaching Field-Marshal in 1948. His other books include Unofficial History (1959). He died in 1972.

Review:

These memoirs rank with those of Ulysses S. Grant as one of the few honest testaments [of war]. (The Readers Companion To Military History)

An outstanding work in the field of war. (The New York Times Book Review)

One of the war's few great captains......a soldier who can reconstruct battles as brilliantly as he fought them. (Time)
