The Retreat Through Burma

 

 

This year three holidays fall on April 1:  April Fool’s Day, Easter and Passover.  Now you have another reason to celebrate; Episode 42 is available!  This episode begins coverage of the Burma campaign, a nasty jungle war that would go on between Japan and the Allies for the rest of World War II in the Pacific.  Today we will see the Japanese conquest of Burma (modern Myanmar), from December 1941 to May 1942.  The conquest did not take five months because of Allied resistance, as was the case in the Philippines, but because of the rugged terrain and the size of the territory that was to be occupied.
