Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Field Marshal Viscount Slim (1891-1970) led shattered British forces from Burma to India in one of the lesser-known but more nightmarish retreats of World War II. He then restored his army's fighting capabilities and morale with virtually no support from home and counterattacked. His army's slaughter of Japanese troops ultimately liberated India and Burma. The first edition of Defeat Into Victory, published in 1956, was an immediate sensation selling 20,000 copies within a few days. This is an updated version with a new introduction by David W. Hogan Jr.

Synopsis:

Field Marshal Viscount Slim (1891-1970) brilliantly led shattered British forces out of Burma into India in one of the lesser-known but most nightmarish retreats of World War II. Once out of Burma, with virtually no support from home, Slim restored his army's fighting capabilities and morale, and counterattacked. His army's slaughter of Japanese troops liberated India and Burma, and inflicted on the Japanese army its largest and most devastating land defeat of World War II.

Synopsis:

An updated version of the classic, definitive account of the Burma campaign in World War 11.

Synopsis:

These memoirs rank with those of Ulysses S. Grant as one of the few honest testaments (of war).--The Readers Companion to Military History
