Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

"...consists of recollections by Japanese survivors of this terrible campaign, who describe instances of poignant sacrifice, heroism, and occasional compassion shown toward the enemy on both sides....full of imagery and information on the Burma Theater and is recommended, especially for the military historian."--Library Journal.

Synopsis:

From war diaries and memoirs come first-person accounts of how the common soldier of the Imperial Japanese Army fared during the Second World War. The focus is on the Burma front, where nearly 200,000 of the 300,000 Japanese troops met their deaths. Their stories tell how they started out eager to conquer a faraway land, and how they came to feel isolated and virtually forgotten, with the constant battering by Allied air superiority and submarine attack.

Synopsis:

This volume tells how the common soldier of the Imperial Japanese Army lived, fought and died in the terrible conflict in Burma between 1942 and 1945. It contains accounts, sometimes moving, often shocking, of what it was like to fight in a strange country, facing death and starvation.
