Professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction, this unique book reproduces twenty important government documents, reports, and studies dealing with World War Two military dramas involving the Chindits, Orde Wingate, the Burma Campaign, China and India.

When asked about World War II, most military scholars easily recall the operations that took place in the North African, European or Pacific Theaters. However, seldom does one hear much about the remote campaign that took place in the South-East Asian Theater - the Burma Campaign. Although mostly ignored or forgotten, the campaign in Burma was arguably one of the most complex and demanding campaigns of World War II. Last priority in the overall war effort, the Burma Campaign, nicknamed "the forgotten front" and "the shoestring theater", offers significant lessons for those who today study the operational art. In the World War II setting, Burma was an economy of force theater in the truest sense. Allied efforts in Europe and the Pacific would eclipse Burma in all respects, especially in the competition for scarce resources. This was to have grave consequences for the operational planners.
