"An extraordinarily fine piece of work" - Joanna Lumley OBE "It is impossible not to be moved by this bitter, sweet film" - Britain at War magazine Shortlisted for London Independent Film Festival During the Second World War, tens of thousands of ordinary working class men were sent to India and Burma, to defend against the invasion of a formidable, and seemingly unstoppable, Japanese army, often in horrendous jungle and monsoon conditions. Although crucial to the eventual allied victory, the Burma Campaign was, and still is, almost unrecognised by much of the free world. For Your Tomorrow is perhaps our first and only opportunity to hear the few surviving veterans of the 'Forgotten Army' break their code of silence to talk candidly about their experiences in an attempt to connect with the younger generation of the 21st century.

I purchased this DVD for my Dad, who served with The 14th Army in Burma during The Second World War - and is very proud of doing so. This DVD looks at things from a totally different angle and perspective and contains mostly interviews with Burma Vererans, rather that footage of the War. Having said that, the interviews are very moving and emotional and it is quite clear that all the men who served in Burma are also very proud to have done so.

Bought for and sent to a Gurkha comrade who fought in Burma. He rang me from Kathmandu and said it moved him to tears. He was nevertheless thankful that I got it for him and gave it to him as he had requested. It reminded him of those he left behind and I suspect it was for him, at the age of 94 and in the twilight of his life, an act of remembrance.

The content of the DVD was very good, however the quality of the DVD was very poor. There is a constant buzzing sound throughout and this spoiled the entire experience. A shame as I bought this as a gift for a person whose father was in Burma during the War.

I cannot comment on the content of this DVD as it was bought as a present - however, it arrived very promptly & I am sure will be well received

As the son of a Burma Veteran I was privileged to attend the premiere of this film in Wolverhampton a year ago. The event was attended by many Burma Veterans, including the Honorary National President of The Burma Star Association. This film is very moving in that it tells the story of several people who wanted to know just what their fathers/grandfathers had been through in this the longest and hardest campaign of WWII. It also features several interviews with surviving veterans who even now find it very difficult to tell their stories, especially the horrors so many of them witnessed. As an Honorary Friend Member of The Burma Star Association having the very great privilege to have met and still meet and talk to veterans in Birmingham, I can very highly recommend this film to all. This should be made available to schools throughout the country as a really good account of what these brave men endured. Having met the producer of this film I know that the project started out as an investigation into his relatives service in Burma which then became a labour of love and thurned into the film now available. Do buy it, watch it, and remember the "Forgotten XIV Army".
