Synopsis

While American troops advanced across the European continent and the vast reaches of the Pacific, they were also fighting, and dying in a remote arena viewed as a sideshow by Allied leaders. In this theater of limited resources, great distances, challenging terrain, and Byzantine politics, American military commanders thus intended to commit few if any conventional forces, yet needed to secure northern Burma to ensure the flow of supplies to the embattled Nationalists. Herein, King, a decorated lietenant with a highly-regarded battalion that fought throughout the East, recounts his darling and often bittersweet military experiences from 1943 to 1945.
