Reporting the Retreat - War Correspondents in Burma

By Philip Woods

Singapore: NUS Press, 2017. Paperback. New. The twenty-six accredited war corespondents covering the British retreat from Burma, the longest in British military history, had quite a task on their hands. They were dealing with a catastrophe which they had never faced before, but wanted to submit accurate reports that would not be cut to shreds by the censors. Most historians consider the reports to have been generally over optimistic, so here Wood examines what was published to determine their accuracy and impact. 206 pages Weight 0.6kg.
