A thoroughly interesting book,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: War in the Wilderness: The Chindits in Burma 1943-1944 (Hardcover)
I bought this book as my dad had been a Chindit but had rarely spoken about his experiences. He often spoke fondly of India and the sights he had seen there, but never of what he had been through in the jungle, at least not to me. Because this book contains memories of other Chindits, it really made me come to understand what he had been through, during and after the war. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn about this period of WWII, and to understand what ordinary young men suddenly found themselves confronted with, experiences that would leave survivors with memories that would haunt them for the rest of their lives. What has made this book really special for me was to find my father in a group photo. Priceless.

I was very touched to read this review having searched many group photos for my father - the author, Tony Redding.
