'Roy Conyers Nesbit makes a strong contribution to giving the Burma campaign the profile that it deserves...this is a first class book indeed and a must-read for any military history enthusiast. This is already a contender for my 'military history book of the year'. Not bad for a book released on 7 January!' --Daly History Blog, 28 January 2010
A vivid portrait of the gruelling campaign in Burma that, though often forgotten, proved the turning point at the battles of Kohima and Imphal of the war in the far east. It was a war in which the jungle terrain was almost as merciless as the Japanese enemy - and Roy Conyers Nesbit had written a brilliant account of it. --Chris Buckland
