About the Author

Raymond A. Callahan is professor emeritus of history, University of Delaware and author of Triumph at Imphal-Kohima: How the Indian Army Finally Stopped the Japanese Juggernaut (Kansas).

Daniel Marston is senior research professor and the director of the Secretary of Defense Strategic Thinkers Program, School of Advanced International Studies, Johns Hopkins University and author of The Indian Army and the End of the Raj.


A much-needed study of the Burma campaign in 1945 by the two foremost historians in the field. Not only do they chart the transformation of the Indian Army but also they relay the story of the forgotten African soldiers fighting in Burma. The authors demonstrate that it was largely due to the contribution of these troops that the Imperial Japanese Army was defeated by 1945. The book is extremely engaging and eloquent: an essential text for anyone studying the campaign. Its accessible prose makes it such a pleasure to read-it therefore deserves a much wider readership than just historians." - Alan Jeffreys, author of Approach to Battle: Training the Indian Army during the Second World War

"There is a stage in every topic when it becomes possible to produce a study that will be 'the' book everyone interested in the matter should read. That time has come, and The 1945 Burma Campaign and the Transformation of the British Indian Army is 'the' book. Callahan and Marston explain how and why the liberation of Burma in 1945 was the peak of military excellence for Allied combined-arms campaigns during the Second World War." - Brian P. Farrell, professor of history, National University of Singapore, and author of The Defence and Fall of Singapore
