This book is one of a series published recently by the same compilers, to which I have become a convert. I have found them increasingly useful for my research, and as a quick point of reference in respect of the campaigns they cover. This one is particularly relevant to me, covering as it does the Army campaigns in Burma from November 1943 until August 1945.

The book comprises four despatches, two from General GIFFARD that cover the period from 16 November 1943 until 12 November 1944; one by Vice Admiral POWER covering the naval operations around Ramree Island in early 1945; and finally the despatch from Lieutenant General LESSE that covers 12 November 1944 until 15 August 1945. Each despatch is reprinted in its original format, and as such, they contain a wealth of information, including some orders of battle and casualty figures.

The book provides a consolidated resource for any student of the land war in Burma from November 1943 onwards, therefore, I recommend it to anyone interested in the Second World War in South-East Asia.
