Although this series of books often takes flack from purists, they are not . However, the China, India, Burma theater had it's own unique problems

Although this series of books often takes flack from purists, they are not meant to be the last word on the subject. I found this book a good overview of an often forgotten theater of WWII. In many respects the campaign was similar to others throughout the pacific. However, the China, India, Burma theater had it's own unique problems. For example, supplying troops was in itself a battle given the terrain, rogue Burmese gorillia units, questionable Chinese loyalty, and the unforgiving monsoon season and extreme heat. There are entire books alone which describe the Burma Road as well as other aspects of the theater. This book is a good place to start.

Although this series of books often takes flack from purists, they are not meant to be the last word on the subject. I found this book a good overview of an often forgotten theater of WWII. In many respects the campaign was similar to others throughout the pacific. However, the China, India, Burma theater had it's own unique problems. For example, supplying troops was in itself a battle given the terrain, rogue Burmese gorillia units, questionable Chinese loyalty, and the unforgiving monsoon season and extreme heat. Combine all this with dense jungle, deadly animals, and disease and a determined enemy and you've got one hell of a combat environment! The book also covers air operations by the Flying Tigers, and the cargo aircraft but there is little info on the 10th Air Force.
The book gave a lot of ink to the commanders such as Stillwell, Chenault and others. The Burma Road was discussed only briefly and in reading further I found that the Burma Road was what lead to massive air lift operations over "The Hump" by cargo aircraft. There are entire books alone which describe the Burma Road as well as other aspects of the theater. This book is a good place to start. You can always pursue further reading. There is a bibliography at the end of the book.
