Arthur Swinson, "Kohima"
English | ISBN: 1784081787 | 2015 | EPUB | 320 pages | 17 MB
A classic account of a decisive battle of World War II, told by a man who fought there himself
Delving into the battle described by Mountbatten as "one of the greatest battles in history," this is a thrilling tale of heroism and combat action. On March 7, 1944, Tokyo announced that the Japanese invasion of British India had begun. By mid-month, the Japanese had crossed the Chindwin River in northern Burma, advancing towards Imphal and Kohima. In bitter jungle fighting from early April, the British Fourteenth Army, under Field Marshal Slim, held the Japanese assault on Kohima Ridge. By late June the Japanese were in headlong retreat. Drawing on documents and diaries from Japanese as well as Allied sources, Arthur Swinson presents a fascinating account of a battle that ranks with Alamein, Midway, and Stalingrad as one of the most strategically important of World War II.
