Volume IV of the combined Army and Navy history of the Burma and Pacific campaigns covers the British Campaign that culminated in the recapture of Rangoon. It's an unfamiliar story to the English speaking world, but was a major part of the destruction of the Japanese Empire. The reclamation was vital to the interests of the British in this area and did a good deal toward the final peaceful transfer of power to the local politicians and governments in these countries in 1947. It should be read in conjunction with George MacDonald Fraser's "Quartered Safe Out Here", Slim's "Defeat into Victory", and John Master's' "Road Past Mandalay" to flesh out the great difficulties and triumphs of both armies, Anglo-Indian and Japanese, entangled in that most difficult country.

I read the HMSO edition published in 1968. ( )
