this volume of the Official British War history covers the Burma army's retreat to the Indian Border, and the difficulties with their American and Chinese Allies at that most difficult time. The maps are so apparently good, that one is left hoping that other countries could update their to the same high standard. It would be a good idea to compare this volume to Slim's account in "Retreat into Victory, his war memoirs of this front. the Japanese get more credit than the USA Pacific based account gives them. There's an impression often given that the Japanese were especially adept at warfare in the tropics, but this account reveals their difficulties as well as those of their Anglo-British opponents. I read the 1962 edition. ( )
