Road past Mandalay,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Road Past Mandalay (CASSELL MILITARY PAPERBACKS) (Paperback)
I bought this book because my Father was fighting in Burma during WW2 and I thought it would be interesting to read up about it. So far I have been unable to get past the second chapter as it is very dull, but I will finish it......in time!

I hope you finished this book, because it is probably one of the best books written about war ever and certainly from a commanders view, it is the best. As a book written by a staff officer it has detail in it that you dont normal see. Very moving, what all these men gave, beggars belief, many, far too many giving all. It competes with All Quiet on The Western Front by Remarque

i am wondering whether that reviewer is able to read. By all others' accounts, this is a fine and famous personal account from a most distinguished author and soldier.
