This author is extraordinarily lucky to be alive! All those who read this splendid Second World War memoir will doubtless come to the same view. After joining up in 1939 with the Queen’s Royal Regiment the Author was posted to the North West Frontier of India where he cut his teeth chasing Pathan tribesman bandit gangs for two years. This was exciting enough but only a taste of what was to come. The Japanese advance into Burma threatened India and along with many thousands of British and Colonial troops Lowry found himself fighting in the Arakan region. Conditions were appalling and the fighting was extremely bitter by any standards. His Battalion was cut off by the Japs for three weeks but refused to surrender yet even worse was to come as the Battalion was thrown into the thick of the action at Kohima which is rated as the most desperate defensive action for the campaign. In one week 173 members of this Battalion were lost. Lowry himself was seriously wounded when a Japanese officer dropped out of a tree onto him. All this is vividly described in this fascinating and inspiring book. AUTHOR: Lt Col Michael Lowry MC MBE pursued a successful military career until his retirement when he became a sheep farmer. SELLING POINTS: Memoirs of the war in Burma and particularly of Kohima are now rare and eagerly awaited. This is one of the most action packed that we have published. Graphic accounts of the fierce fighting on the NW Frontier and at Arakan and Kohima. 12 pages of plates
