This, the sixth title in the Official History of the Royal Regiment of Artillery new series, takes a thorough and comprehensive look at the part played by the Gunners in the war against Japan. The Regiment was ill-equiped in the quality and quantity of its guns and in its readiness to fight in the jungle. The story of the loss of Hong Kong, Malaya, Singapore, the Netherlands, East Indies and Burna to a well equipped, trained and prepared opponent is a dark one, but illuminated time and again by the gallantry of the men who served the guns. The fight back, unsuccessful to begin with, followed by the arrival of more and better guns, the institution of thorough training and the tremendous contribution of gunners from India, led to victory at last. Many men saw themselves as part of The Forgotten Army: this book demonstrates that they are by no means forgotten.
