LAST ITEM HELD MATCHING THIS TITLE STATED:

Gale & Polden. Aldershot, Hampshire, U.K. October 1952. First Edition;. pages xxii, 304; illustrations, maps; hardcover in very good plus dust jacket (protected); very good plus condition. . EXTREMELY RARE. This is a military unit history of a happy and highly trained army division of British, Indian and Gurkha troops, which first met the Japanese invaders who were in the flush of copnfidence and arrogance bred of two years of unbroken victory on the Asian and Southeast Asian Mainland. Never before had the Japanese met a "fully trained division" on the Asiatic Mainland, and though they were soon to meet many more, it was at the hands of the 7th Indian Division that the Japanese felt the bitterness of decisive defeat in a major campaign, which hit the headlines as "The Battle of the Boxes" and broke the Japanese hold on Arakan. From this battle the Division went straight to the Assam battlefields, without rest, by air and road, and there, in a series of fierce actions, drove the Japanese from the heights dominating Kohima, and took up the persuit over the jungle-clad mountains and roaring torrents of the Naga Hills in the binding rain of the Indian monsoon. After a short rest it led the first phase of General Slim's brilliant secret thrust to Meiktila, with IV Corps under General Messervy, described by the Japanese Commander-in-Chief as "The Master Stroke". Thereafter, in the oppressive heat and fierce storms of the gathering monsoons in April and May 1945, the Divisionj cleared the Irrawaddy Valley of rear-guards fighting desperately to hold up the advance long enough to extricate the remnants of their forces from Arakan, and VJ Day (August 1945) found it fighting knee-deep and often waist-deep in the swamps of the Sittang bend. The Division (in 1952) lives as the 7th Division of the Pakistan Army.
