This is the story of a deadly struggle between fanatical Japanese Imperial troops and the British Army. It was fought in the dense tropical jungle of Burma in 1943 and 1944 and was one of the toughest battles of World War II. In this conflict, Major-General Orde Wingate employed fighting tactics that were not the product of an army staff college, but gleaned from his previous experiences of guerrilla warfare learned in Palestine and Abyssinia. He played them at their own game, taking his troops deep behind enemy lines and using hit-and-run tactics to break communications, disrupt supply lines, and shatter the morale of the Japanese emperor's disciples. The men of this force became known as Chindits.--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
