A wonderful book about a group of men during WW II in Burma, by a very insightful writer.

A wry narrative of the war in Burma by one who was there. Anything by Fraser is worth reading.

This book is among my all time favorites. Not a story of great battles, and momentous military strategy, but rather the way a small part of the WWII Burma campaign looked to an ordinary foot soldier. Fraser manages to bring his gift for story telling and dialog to a gripping non-fiction war story. You also get a very good perspective on how the men who fought in WWII view the way modern "historians" are revising their actions, thoughts and motives.
