    Fighting Through Kohima

    I've read a number of reviews of this book on other forums some of them not very pleasant referring to the author as a WW2 General Melchett which I believe is where most of the younger generation get their history from. I found the early part of the book to be hard work, his youth and time at Sandhurst however once he arrives at his battalion - 1st Queen's Royal Regiment - and goes on operations on the north west frontier it becomes much more interesting and more so once they proceed to the Arakan and thence to Kohima after which the author was evacuated with malaria. The writing style is taken from diaries and private letters, the author was a company commander and as such performed a difficult job well showing a great deal of thought before each operation and a touching sense of duty toward his soldiers. I found the book to be a good read and will definitely read it again and would recommend it to anyone interested in pre-war soldiering as well as the operations against the Japanese in the Arakan and Imphal.
