Description

By Jack Bowsher

Hardback

Forgotten Armour is a new and exciting appraisal of the role of tanks in India and Burma in the Second World War.  

Often regarded primarily as an infantryman’s war in dense jungle and through monsoon conditions, the book shows that this is far from the whole story.  Using original research from archives, eyewitness testimony, official histories, and recent academic studies, this promise to be a fresh take on the war against Japan. Due in stock 1st July 2024. 

Beginning with the failure to fully mechanise the interwar Indian Army, and tracing the development of armoured training, logistics and tactics, Forgotten Armour tells the story of the Second World War in India and Burma from the cramped interior of tanks.   From 7th Armoured Brigade’s heroic efforts to save the retreating troops in 1942, the desperate struggles at the Admin Box, Imphal, and Kohima, through to the greatest example of modern manoeuvre warfare in the Second World War during the reconquest of Burma.  

Once tanks arrived in the theatre, and bunker busting methods were devised, armour proved decisive in their encounters against the Japanese and saved countless Allied lives.  It is time to remember the forgotten army’s forgotten armour.
