9780099551782: The Burma Campaign: Disaster into Triumph 1942-45

The Burma Campaign was one of the most punishing and protracted military adventures of World War Two. 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.

Vivid, brutal, utterly enthralling, The Burma Campaign is a strikingly original account from one of our most celebrated historians.

Review:

"Epic...a comprehensive and engrossing account" (Brian MacArthur Literary Review)

"McLynn gives an honest, gruelling account of the longest most punishing campaign fought by the British during the Second World War" (Iain Finlayson The Times)

"Easily one of the best books he has written in a long and distinguished career... A marvellous subject, too" (Trevor Royle Sunday Herald)

"Magnificent...a closely woven, tightly argued and beautifully written account of the extraordinary men and women who were responsible for the higher direction of the war... This book delights, page after page. McLynn held me spellbound" (Robert Lyman BBC History Magazine)

"A riveting read" (Christopher Sylvester Daily Express)

Book Description:
