1st ed., 1994. Xiv + 248 pp., 31 photo-plates + 3 maps. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. The Battle of Kohima, fought against the Japanese in North Burma in April, May and June 1944, was described by Earl Mountbatten as 'probably one of the greatest battles in history' and yet even educated people are unlikely to be able to give an exact answer to the question, what happened at Kohima ? Though the story of this epic battle has been told before, it is one that unquestionably merits re-examination, and the author's dramatic style, supported by a wealth of hitherto untapped sources, vividly recreates the horror and the drama of this crucial battle that was to prove the turning point of the Burma Campaign.
