Book Description
The Longest Retreat is not an official history; it is a blow by blow account of a bloody and disastrous campaign, told through the eyes of the men who were there - generals, brigadiers, the American "Flying Tigers", subalterns, civilians, sergeants, lance-corporals and private soldiers; British, American, Indian, Gurkha and Burmese. It is a story of tragic complacency, desperate decisions, Japanese barbarity, great courage and amazing physical endeavour and exhaustion. The retreat of the British Army from Burma in 1942 ranks with those to Corunna and after Mons; the difference is that it was longer and infinitely more terrible.
