Forgotten Voices of Burma. Julian Thompson

From the end of 1941 to 1945 a pivotal but often overlooked conflict was being fought in the South-East Asian Theatre of World War II – the Burma Campaign. In 1941 the allies fought in a disastrous retreat across Burma against the Japanese – an enemy more prepared, better organised and more powerful than anyone had imagined. Yet in 1944, following key battles at Kohima and Imphal, and daring operations behind enemy lines by the Chindits, the Commonwealth army was back, retaking lost ground one bloody battle at a time. Fighting in dense jungle and open paddy fields, this brutal campaign was the longest fought by the British Commonwealth in the Second World War. But the troops taking part were a forgotten army, and the story of their remarkable feats and their courage is told – much of it for the first time –in this remarkable new oral history. Introduction by: Viscount Slim.
