Merrill's Marauders - The Road to Burma - The Illustrated Edition

Fully illustrated throughout with maps, photographs and charts, this authoritative and entertaining book is an account of the operations of the 5307th Composite Unit (Provisional), more commonly known as Merrill's Marauders, in North Burma from February to May, 1944. The book is based on the interviews of the soldiers who not only survived five major and thirty minor engagements with the veterans of the Japanese 18th Division, but also had to battle constant fatigue, dysentery, malaria and malnutrition, in difficult mountain terrain. They prepared the way for the southward advance of the Chinese by disorganizing supply lines and communications. The climax of the Marauders' operations was the capture of the Myitkyina airfield.
