This monumental work covers all aspects of India's contribution to the Allied cause between 1939 and 1945. The narrative is packed with a huge amount of information regarding even the smallest fighting, logistical and medical units and sub-units, and yet it remains eminently readable throughout.

The Reconquest of Burma Volume 1 describes the plans of the war and the conduct of operations leading to the reconquest of Burma in 1945. The Indian troops were called upon, first to protect the north-eastern frontiers of India by blocking the progress of the Japanese forces into India, and then to punch them out of India and Burma in co-operation with other Allied forces. The volume also covers the planning aspect of the reconquest of Burma, and also the bitter fighting which took place around Imphal and Kohima. It also describes the two Wingate expeditions conducted behind the Japanese lines and carries the story of the war in Burma right up to June 1944.
