The Burma Campaign was one of the most punishing and protracted military adventures of World War Two.
Impenetrable jungle, poor transport infrastructure, seasonal monsoon rains, as well as famine, disease, snakes and crocodiles all bore heavily on the troops.
Against this extraordinary backdrop, Frank McLynn constructs the dramatic story of the four larger-than-life commanders directing the Allied effort: Louis Mountbatten, Orde Wingate, Joseph Stilwell and William Slim, and explores the Campaign through their often stormy relationship.
Vivid, brutal, utterly enthralling, The Burma Campaign is a strikingly original account from one of our most celebrated historians.
