Burma : The Longest War 1941-1945
by Louis Allen
Book Description: Charting the whole Burma war, this book flows like a novel from the high command to the sharp end setting out a myriad of facts and considerations in a clear and coherent narrative. Ranging far beyond pure military history the story is multi-layered, combining objective analysis with a sensitive account of human reaction in the face of bitter, cruel warfare, disease and an inhospitable terrain. Military events are painstakingly detailed, and set in their political and cultural context. Equal attention is paid to both sides of the conflict and the insights made into Japanese plans and responses make the book uniquely informative, exciting and moving.

Quartered Safe Out Here : A Recollection of the War in Burma
by George MacDonald Fraser
At the age of nineteen, the author saw action with Nine Section, a small group of hard-bitten and possibly eccentric Cumbrian borderers in their struggles against the Japanese in Burma during the last great land campaign of World War II. Fraser has now added to his excellent memoir a substantial new afterword occasioned by the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the war. Db.

Wingate and the Chindits : Redressing the Balance
by David Rooney
Synopsis: Major General Orde Wingate, DSO and two bars, who had created and personally led the Chindits (commandos, from the Burmese word for a griffin) was killed in an air accident in March 1944, at the height of the second Chindit campaign. He was highly praised, especially by General Slim. But by 1956, Slim was dismissive of him in Defeat into Victory, and the Official British History in 1961 was viciously critical. What happened to change minds so completely? David Rooney examines the life and achievement of a maverick soldier who inspired loyalty and devotion in some, hostility in others. He presents facts that thoughtful, diligent research has uncovered, to leave a broader impression of Wingate's colourful career. The result is an intriguing portrait of a military mind of daring originality, deserving of a better judgement in military history.
