A fascinating autobiography from an officer in the Queens Regiment who saw active service on the North West Frontier before being invloved in the Arakan and the battle of Kohima and subsequent reconquest of Burma. It is written with humour and compassion and the obvious pride he has for both the Regiment and his soldiers shines through. A very well written and facinating book on 1 Queen's role in the second Arakan campaign and their redeployment to Dimapur and the subsequent relief of Kohima.

Lt. Col. Michael Lowry MC MBE, was awarded the Military Cross for his role in the desperate defensive action at Kohima, rated the worst of the campaign in Burma. After joining up in 1939 with the Queen's Royal Regiment, the Author was posted to the North West Frontier of India where he cut his teeth chasing gangs of Pathan bandits for two years. As the Japanese advanced into Burma, Lowry found himself fighting in the Arakan region, where his battalion was cut off by the Japanese for three weeks. Having survived that, next came the action at Kohima where during one week Lowry's battalion lost 173 members. Lowry was seriously wounded in the conflict but fortunately lived to tell the tale. This is a fascinating and inspiring book, one of the most action-packed memoirs of the war in Burma ever published.
