Book Description

This is the story of a young officer in the Indian Army who commanded a company in the Burma Campaign of 1943 to 1945. It covers the part played by the author and his unit in the long campaign to recover Burma, starting with the fierce close-quarter fighting in the jungles and rice-fields in the Arakan in which the Japanese suffered their first major defeat. The story moves on to Kohima which was the scene of some of the bitterest fighting in the Burma War, and which saved India.

For the author, however, the Burma War was a prelude to the bitter campaign in Korea (1950-51), where the author commanded a company of the Middlesex Regiment in the harsh conditions of extreme cold and snow, as part of the Commonwealth Brigade fighting in close co-operation with the Americans.

A really fascinating account of a young man who after volunteering straight from school in 1940 found himself leading an Indian platoon in the jungles of Burma. Wounded on a number of occasions he transferred to the Middlesex Regiment after the War to see further service in the Korean War as a company commander. A fascinating story which is not only a war memoir but tells of his experiences elsewhere such as trekking in the
Himalaya's.

I did enjoy this book I thought the first part fighting the Japanese was more interesting than the Korean war but still worth a read .
