The Battle of the Atlantic

Rated 4.00 out of 5

The Battle of the Atlantic played a very significant part in World War Two.  After the escape at Dunkirk and the inspiration of the Battle of Britain, the Battle of the Atlantic was Britain’s next nightmare.

The War in the Jungle


In the Second World War in Europe and Africa, vast arrays of tanks, aircraft and artillery supported the infantryman. Little of this was available in Malaya or Burma, which is best understood as a foot soldier’s war.

Most members of the British and Indian army left Burma with the belief that in the jungle the Japanese were unstoppable. The first action to start to dispel this myth of invincibility would come from the actions of the Chindits.The Chindits were a special force of 3,000 which in February 1942 launched a deep penetration raid, (code-named Operation Longcloth) into Japanese occupied Burma.
