I like this book. Over the years, I had read about the Japanese reaching the borders of India during World War II but never did get the chance to learn how they were defeated.

David Rooney has written an excellent book that brings the events of the times to light. David has written this book for the lay public, and not for military historians.

The writing style is concise. He has done justice to a gentleman who went named Wingate. His book inspired me to get another book called “Wingate and the Chindits.”

The only thing that I will ask for, in a later edition of the book, is that the author includes some maps. This will help to bring the events to life, as will some photographs. ( )
