‘Heroic, punishing excursions behind enemy lines, the Chindit expeditions are mythical and controversial in equal measure…Rhodes James takes us right to the heart of them’ Al Murray
__________________________________
1943 – The fight to retake Burma is about to begin. Major-General Orde Wingate surprises the conquering Japanese Army with a daring raid they had no idea was coming. But this is just the beginning.

Next, he devises a campaign of guerrilla operation to hit the invaders where it most hurts. Behind their own lines. Marshalling and training a lethal force of 10,000 men deep in the Burmese jungle, the Chindits are born.

Cipher Officer Richard Rhodes James was part of that hidden army and chronicles the story of a band of brothers fighting for survival against a remorseless enemy and an unforgiving environment. Neither took any prisoners. The Chindits’ daring actions and tactical brilliance laid the foundations for turning the tide of the war in the East.
