It provides a detailed record of the events that took place in the inhospitable region of the Burmese jungles and against the merciless Japanese enemy. The book traces closely the course of the campaign through Wingate's Phantom Army and it provides a valuable insight into the day-to-day trials of marching through the jungle as well as vividly depicting the terrors of combat against the intrepid Japanese fighting force. This is an excellent account, illustrated with a wealth of photographs and explained by a folding and partly coloured map at the rear of the book.
