"In 1944 some 20, 000 troops trained for guerrilla warfare marched or were flown into Burma behind the Japanese lines. Some 3, 000, who came to be called the 'Marauders', were American under the command of General Joseph Stilwell, and the remainder were 'Chindits', the brainchild of General Orde C. Wingate. This book focuses upon the contrasting methods of warfare waged by Stilwell and Wingate, the consequences of Wingate's death in March 1944, and, above all, relates how 'the dry work of operational planning staffs affected the fate of ordinary soldiers, whose hard task was to realise the overall plan in a brutal war fought in a brutal environment'. The author provides a careful assessment of the personalities and tactics involved and vividly portrays their effects at the fighting man's level." Herbert #258.
