An absolute must read for any military enthusiast,
By A Customer
This review is from: Defeat into Victory: Battling Japan in Burma and India, 1942-1945 (Paperback)
Field Marshall Slim provides an in-depth account of this campaign from the withdrawal into India to the final defeat of Japan. The book is a must for any would-be leader of military men and is a bible for those studying leadership. The campaign is centred on the Battle for Imphal and Kohima and then the eventual clearing of Burma and the opposed crossing of the Irrawady River, no mean feat considering it is 1.5 miles wide in places! Those that read this book will not only enjoy the style but also learn the ins and out of how the campaign was run and how thin the line was between success and defeat. The more modern copies have reduced the maps which make studying them more difficult. I would therefore recommend an older copy to get the most out of the book.
