JACKET FLAP BLURB

India was the jumping-off point to the Burma campaign, and, to the untraveled 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 impression as they sailed across the Indian Ocean in sweltering troopships. There was no magic or mystery, maharajahs were thin on the ground, 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 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.
