Hey everyone. know Im late today but in the spirit of armistice day, I thought Id put this up.
The Burma Campaign was a campaign in the South-East Asian Theatre of World War II and was vitally important to the allies in their efforts to contain the japanese in South East Asia. It is often referred to as the forgotten war - " by the time Victory over Japanwas declared on August 15 ,1945 the surviving veterans of the British and Commonwealth 14th Army had long regarded themselves as overlooked by the press and the people back home. A quote attributed to General Slim, the Army's commander confirms this status: "When you go home don't worry about what to tell your loved ones and friends about service in Asia. No one will know where you were, or where it is if you do. You are, and will remain 'The Forgotten Army'."
