Kohima: The Furthest Battle


15 November 2018
Kohima-web-66626.jpg Fighting the Japanese in the Far East
A new book telling the story of the Japanese invasion of India in 1944 has been released by The History Press.

On 6 March 1944, the Japanese Army crossed the inhospitable border of what was then Burma and invaded India. By the end of 1942 the Japanese had occupied most of South-East Asia.

As March 2019 marks 75 years since Britain’s greatest ever land battle, Leslie Edwards’ Kohima tells the story of the turning point in Japanese fortunes during World War II.

From Kohima until their formal surrender on 2 September 1945, the Japanese were regularly defeated and forced to retreat towards Japan. Complete with the largest selection of explanatory diagrams and maps of the battle ever assembled in one volume and of tremendous interest to Burma veterans and admirers of General Slim’s ‘forgotten army’, Kohima explores one of the major conflicts between the East and West during this turbulent period of the world’s history.
