5.0 out of 5 stars Road of Bones. The Siege of Kohima 1944, 31 Dec. 2010
By 
This review is from: Road of Bones: The Siege of Kohima 1944 - The Epic Story of the Last Great Stand of Empire (Hardcover)
Looking through some of the reviews I can only observe that if you go through life looking for flaws and faults you wont be disappointed. I've read just about everything ever published on the siege of Kohima, and events before and afterwards, and in my humble opinion Fergal Keane has produced a quite excellent piece of work which adds much to our understanding of the Burma campaign. Someone once told Len Deighton that a historian was a historian whether professional or amateur and whichever adjective you want to apply to Fergal Keane he certainly mastered this bit of history. I noticed that one reviewer thought that the author should have contacted him because his father had a peripheral involvement. Fergal Keane knows me and he knows that my father was also in Burma but I didn't expect him to interview me about it; if he had talked to everyone whose father served there his research would have taken a lot longer than the ten years he actually did spend. Well researched, very thoughtfully constructed and beautifully written.
