Overview

John Randle served with the greatly respected Baluch Regiment of the former Indian Army right through the fiercely fought Burma Campaign, winning an MC yet on VJ day he was only some 60 miles from where had started out nearly four years before.

Unlike other conventional war memoirs, this book comprises a gratifying number of self-contained stories drawn from the author's experiences and memories. Some are long, other mere vignettes; some are moving and serious, others are light-hearted even humorous. Some cover hard-won victories and success, others defeats and reversal; some describe acts of great valour, others incidents reflecting human frailties. All however are worth reading and give a very accurate picture of war at its bitterest when men are drawn together and individuals are under that most demanding microscope of their fellow comrades-in-arms.
