    And in Burma air support, as we have seen, means not only tactical bombing and strafing: it is the supply line, the life line, of the plunging columns on the ground. But General Slim, remembering the heavy miles of retreat incould take grim satisfaction as he looked south from Mandalay, in the knowledge that he had already inflicted on the Japanese the most crushing land defeat of their entire history. Matthew W. Mountbatten had decided that 14th Army's great commander was tired and needed a rest, and therefore replaced him at the moment of his great triumph. Chiefs of Staff had strongly opposed this strategy as diluting the Allied focus in France. Gradual progress was made against stiffening opposition as German 14th Army moved troops from the quieter sector opposite U.

It has also been suggested that Leese disliked working in league with Clark after the Fifth Army's controversial move on Rome at the end of May and early June and wished for the Eighth Army to win the battle on its own.

    The advancing columns captured numerous enemy supply dumps on the way. It stalled and was bloodily repulsed - and morale sank even further. To defend Pyauhwe, which fell on April 11, he rushed reinforcements at night in trucks, with headlamps blazing in their desperate haste: sixty were ambushed and destroyed. He therefore arranged to withdraw from Tiddim and to put Imphal in a state of immediate defense. Few of the men locked in this fight for survival had a clear idea of what was happening beyond the lip of their own trench.

But assuming, as is well known, that a British division numbers approximately 15, men and that at least three communications, reserve, artillery and specialist soldiers are required for every man actually in the front line, it is apparent that the total strength of Admiral Mountbatten's ground forces involved in the Burma campaigns of spring,must have amounted to about one million men from Britain and the British Empire.

The most savage fighting of the battle erupted in mid-May. He was assassinated in Rangoon, along with most of his Cabinet, within months, however. The book does have its weaknesses.
