Book Description

This book starts with an introduction to me, which I think adds something to the whole thing. Into primary training, the voyage overseas, and being sunk in the Mediterranean sea. Resuming the voyage on a bluddy awful peacetime troop ship. Deolali, being held back for glasses. |No Jungle training, which it would seem most everyone else got. The siege of Imphal, then more than 500 miles chasing the Japs out of Burma. The dropping of the atom bomb which saved us from the invasion of Malaya.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something Completely different 3 July 2013
Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I felt as though i was sitting in a London living room, listening to Mr Parker telling me his story, warts and all, and at times very funny. Never mind the awful punctuation and spelling, etc. These added a special atmosphere to a remarkable story...all the more remarkable because it was the norm! It describes the war in Burma as experienced by 'squaddies", as well as highlighting the frightening lack of training and preparation of these young men in WW2.

As pleasant write up from a signals private in Burma and India, it shows well the regular soldiers life at that time and is well written so it's a pleasure - recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reason for reading this book 13 Feb. 2015
Not enough detail but a good read . As my father was at imphal with the raf medical unit I tend to look for books written about the seige so that can get a picture of what took place.
