The Burma campaign of the Second World War was one of the most gruelling ever undertaken by British forces. Although commanded by singular characters such as Slim and Mountbatten, it was dominated by the 'ordinary' soldiers from every country of the British empire. This is the story of lives transformed by war in the South-East.
