Charting the whole Burma War, this book flows like a novel from the high command to the sharp end, setting out a myriad of facts and considerations in a clear and coherent narrative. Equal attention is paid to both sides of the conflict and the insights made into the Japanese plans and responses make the book uniquely informative, exciting and moving. This classic history is the authoritative and most detailed book on an important part of the second world war.show more
