About the Author:

E. W. Elliot''s book, Burma The Forgotten War, is a timely reminder of the titanic battles fought by the 14th Army in Burma against the "invincible" Japanese Armies. At the age of 20 he volunteered for the R.A.F. seeing active service in Biggin Hill, the Middle East, India and Burma. In the Forward Areas he mingled with the "walking skeletons" of the 14th Army learning first hand of their 1,000 miles retreat from Rangoon to India. In 1944 the Japanese surrendered in their thousands. They were half starved and scared stiff of what the "Devil Westerners" would do to them. Reading this book one can feel and taste the bitter-sweet comradeship of the men who called Burma "The Green Hell".
