The China-Burma-India Campaign, 1931-1945: Historiography and Annotated Bibliography

The China-Burma-India Campaign, 1931-1945: Historiography and Annotated Bibliography (Bibliographies of Battles and Leaders) by Eugene L. Rasor
English | Mar 19, 1998 | ISBN: 0313288720 | 304 Pages | PDF | 17 MB

The China-Burma-India campaign of the Asian/Pacific war of World War II was the most complex, if not the most controversial, theater of the entire war. Guerrilla warfare, commando and special intelligence operations, and air tactics originated here. The literature is extensive and this book provides an evaluative survey of that vast literature. A comprehensive compilation of some 1,500 titles, the work includes a narrative historiographical overview and an annotated bibliography of the titles covered in the historiographical section.
