Orde Wingate, a military maverick and proponent of guerrilla warfare, knew that Allied victory against the Japanese in Burma’s jungles and mountains required a new type of soldier – the Chindit, indoctrinated with special training and physical conditioning. Opposing the Chindits were veteran Japanese infantrymen, including those of the crack 18th Division, who had proven time and again their ability to adapt to the harshest conditions, fight – and win. The trial of strength between these two foes would play a key part in the savage struggle for Burma, and this book tells the dramatic story of their clashes from a small-unit perspective. Featuring vivid full-colour artwork and focusing on details of the experience of the soldiers on the ground, this book offers a glimpse into what it was like to fight, on both sides, in three brutal engagements that would hasten Japan’s defeat in Burma in World War II.
