very detailed history of Burma campaign.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Burma Campaign: Disaster into Triumph 1942-45 (Paperback)
I found this history totally enlightening, its descriptions of the major players - Stilwell, Slim, Chiang Kai Shek, FDR, Mountbatten, Wingate etc., show that nothing has changed in politics, and the world goes on despite the fact that nonentities are promoted to positions beyond their capabilities today as they were then, with good honest men suffering because of their beliefs. I already knew quite a bit about the various side shows in the region during this time and this book adds to the books by Turnbull and histories of Messervy and associated officers.
