The massive invasions, spectacular sea battles and devastating bombing of WWll could not have occurred without enormous organization, coordination, and discipline - all the meat and potatoes of modern warfare. For those with more exotic appetites, however, there was China, Burma, and India. In this book the author relates the sprawling and dramatic tale of the theater of war in which forceful personalities battled chaos and conventional warfare was impossible. The Allies reluctance to commit resources to side-alley fight led to a motley crew of separate commands and specialized units lead by some of the most colorful, unconventional and innovative commanders in modern history. And, their enormous egos are as much a part of the story as the battles they fought. In this book you will meet the commander of the famed Flying Tigers, the famous Merrill's Marauders and their commander, the British maverick who created the famous Chindits who operated behind enemy lines and more. Complete with photos and maps, the book brings the most dramatic events and the most memorable leaders of China, Burma, India to life.
