The Burma Campaign: Disaster into Triumph 1942-45
A vivid, brutal and enthralling account of the Burma Campaign - one of the most punishing and hard-fought military adventures of the Second World War.
The Burma Campaign was one of the most punishing and protracted military adventures of Second World War. Impenetrable jungle, poor transport infrastructure, seasonal monsoon rains, as well as famine, disease, snakes and crocodiles all bore heavily on the troops.
Against this extraordinary backdrop, Frank McLynn constructs the dramatic story of the four larger-than-life commanders directing the Allied effort- Louis Mountbatten, Orde Wingate, Joseph Stilwell and William Slim, and explores the Campaign through their often stormy relationship.
