The Burma Road - The Epic Story of the China-Burma-India Theater in World War II

Donovan Webster

   The China-India-Burma campaign (CBI) is among the most harrowing chapters of World War II, and one that Americans know least about.   Using a wealth of archival documents, American, Japanese, British and Chinese CBI veterans, Webster tells the full story of the grueling campaign led by legendary field general "Vinegar" Joe Stillwell and his eccentric British counterpart Orde Windgate, to reopen and defend the Burma Road, the trade route built by Chinese troops under Chiang Kai-Shek that stretches from Kunming, China to Lashio, Burma.

    The real heroes of the CBI campaign, of course, are the soldier themselves, who labored for years on the Burma Road under excruciating conditions, only to see the road unnecessary when the Allies gained control over the Pacific Islands.   In the BURMA ROAD, Donovan Webster presents a passionate, accessible, and informative account of this forgotten theater, securing for these soldiers their rightful and deserved place in popular American History.
