    DescriptionThe Chindits were a specially organized, equipped and trained body of men employing innovative fighting methods based on ideas originally developed by Major-General Orde Wingate. Raised to fight deep behind Japanese lines in the Burmese Jungle in World War II, their contribution to the Allied cause remains controversial to this day. Accompanied by full-colour illustrations this book describes the origins of this elite formation, detailing their recruitment, training and specialist fighting methods, and reveals the distinctive dress, equipment and weapons used, as well as the immense hardships suffered by the officers and men involved.

    Review quote
    "Author Tim Moreman tells us the full story of these men begining with how they were recruited, what training they got, how they worked with others in their unit, what clothing and weaponry they used and how they performed in battle. Add to it a goodly selection of period photos combined with the the artwork of Peter Denis, and you have a superlative book on a subject that I found particularly fascinating. I'm positive you will feel the same way once you read this so put the grabs on this title when you come across it at your local shop." -Scott Van Aken, "www.modelingmadness.com "(April 2009)
