"Airborne Over Burma" is the story of Douglas Sutcliffe and of air crews who served in World War II, flying in supplies for the Burma Campaign, and gives an account of the campaign as seen from the air. Throughout the book, Doug tells of his many lucky escapes; by the end of the war he had survived 356 operational flights. Wingate's army were dependent on the lifeline that these air crews provided, and without them the land-based troops would have perished. The book is a personal account and, as such, has both tragic and humorous recollections. Above all, it shows examples of courage, determination and, as the author himself admits, sheer luck.
