Imperial Japanese Conquer Burma
British Humiliation #2
© 2009
220 pages; 25 chapters and 3 appendixes
The e-book, Imperial Japanese Conquer Burma, explains how again the
British Army was humiliated in 1941. This time another small Japanese force
defeated a larger
British Army and subsequently newspaper headlines
proclaimed,
Imperial Japanese Conquer Burma. However, the e-book,
Imperial Japanese Conquer Burma, is more than the story of the Japanese
conquests of
Burma. It is also the story of how the British Army returned to
Burma, took it back and thus overturned the humiliating headline, Imperial
Japanese Conquer Burma
.
Review Table of Contents
"Once having made contact with the opposition, the Japanese avoided frontal attacks in force and sent fighting patrols
around the flanks and to the rear of their opposition. These patrols usually were small, consisting of from two to a few
dozen men. They were dressed lightly but were armed with several light machine guns. Each man carried enough
concentrated food to keep him going for several days. The Japanese infiltrators apparently had been trained
thoroughly, hardened for jungle warfare, and given wide discretion as to tactics. They were expert swimmers and
boatmen and were otherwise qualified to overcome the difficulties of jungle warfare. They have been instructed to look
upon woods and water as means, not obstacles. In the initial stages of the infiltration attacks, small patrols crept
noiselessly around the flanks or between defense points to surround the opposition. Usually they remained quiet until
their comrades in front of the defenders feint a heavy frontal attack. Then the infiltration patrols opened automatic fire to
give opposing forces the impression that they had been surrounded. The patrols keep moving about while firing and
even when fired on. The volume of fire produced by an unusually large number of automatic weapons in the hands of
the patrols and front-line troops indicated stronger forces than those actually engaged. Sometimes the Japanese set off
firecrackers and made other noises to imitate fire. Sometimes great batches of firecrackers were dropped from
airplanes, with a lighted fuze to ignite them after they fell."
