Following Japans declaration of war, Burma played a significant part in World War Two for the British Army

Following Japans declaration of war, Burma played a significant part in World War Two for the British Army. Here, Orde Wingate and the Chindits were a formidable foe and it was in Burma where the Japanese Army suffered serious military setbacks that led to them dropping the whole idea of invading India and retreating back east. Initially, the Japanese had advanced to Burma as her army had murdered, raped and tortured both civilians and military alike, between 1942 and 1943.

Book description The Army Officer Corps and Military Modernisation in Later Colonial India. University of Hull Press, 1999.

The Partition of British India in 1947 resulted in the establishment of the independent states of India and Pakistan and the end of the British Raj. The decision to divide British India along religious lines led to widespread upheaval and communal violence in the period leading up to and following the official day of independence, 15 August 1947.

It was during this time that the British Military Intelligence began propaganda work to shield the true numbers who joined the INA, and also described stories of Japanese brutalities that indicated, falsely, INA involvement. However, the intelligence was also aware at this point of misinformation being spread about the INA itself by the agents who concealed their purpose and professed to pass on intelligence from local knowledge. More troubling for the military command were the activities of the INA agents in the battle fields of India's eastern frontier in Burma.

To Stop a Rising Sun is a unique record of first-hand accounts recalling what life was really like for British servicemen and women in India, Burma and the Far East during the Second World War.India was the jumping-off point to the Burma campaign and, to the untravelled Englishman and more especially to the British other ranks, it was a land of magic, mystery, maharajahs and mendicants. But the reality overshadowed the preformed impressions as they sailed across the Indian Ocean in sweltering troopships. There was no magic or mystery, maharajahs were thin on the ground, and there was a superabundance of mendicants displaying the most horrific and loathsome disabilities.Within these pages the reader will find the British XIVth Army, the RAF, Royal Marines, the celebrated Chindits, 'V' Force, Combined Operations, Indian Airborne and the East and West African forces under the command of the SEAC and ALFSEA. To Stop a Rising Sun will appeal to all who served in the Far East during the Second World War, to their family and friends and to those with an interest in military history.
