One of the better reads on the Jungle campaigns in Burma, this book doesn't go into great detail over Kohima or Imphal, despite that it mentions both rather adequately.

Instead, the reader is guided gently on the ways and means of surviving the jungle itself, and the hazards of ignoring experience from those who have preceded one in that environment.

The experience the reader has is every atom as gripping and visceral as the human side of Sajer's "The Forgotten Soldier" in an environment every atom as extreme, for all the vast differences.

I recommend this book, with enthusiasm, as one of very few truly readable books on war in the jungle.

Kind regards, Uyraell.
