This is an outstanding history for individuals seriously interested in the details of British Indian amour against Japan in Burma during World War II.
I would recommend the book for any serious student of the British Army in World War II. This is primarily about the 7th Armoured Brigade which reached Rangoon in early 1942 and took part in the long retreat to India between February and May, 1942.
The book has numerous quotations and stories from the individuals who took part in the war, and its their stories which I found the most interesting.

The primary reason I gave the book four stars instead of five stars is because a few more maps would have been very useful. The book is full of after action reports which reference areas not covered by any of the maps contained in the book.
This is not a fatal flaw and I still encourage individuals interested in Britain's war against Japan in Burma to take the time to read this book. Its as close to a "page turner" as you'll ever find in a non fiction tome.

This is not a book for someone who only wants a cursory story of British activity in Burma in World War II.

Written in that boys own 'officer' style but doesn't shy away from the realities. It made me so much more aware of the sheer grind of the Burma campaign and even more in awe of the courage shown by the British and Indian troops - a good read that moves along at a good pace - if you already know your Grant from your Stuart then u will enjoy this
