    Title: The Game of Thrones: China-Burma-India Campaign of WW II

    Description:

    The jungle war that was the China-Burma-India campaign of the Second World War was the most unconventional, colourful and dramatic of battles. Marked by internecine squabbles and political intrigues, and coupled with enormous stakes, neither the Allies nor the Axis powers were willing to let go of this front. From the heroic transport flights over the “Hump” of the Himalayas to drop supplies to the Chinese resistance to the most prodigious engineering feats of the Manipur and Ledo Roads, this battle was amongst the fiercest and demanded ingenuity at all levels. Who were these mavericks and why were the powers so desperate to control this front? What was really at stake in this, till recently, little acknowledged and yet critical, theatre of war
