This is the definitive film record of the war in Burma, focusing on the battles and campaigns fought by British and Commonwealth forces from Singapore onwards and comprised almost entirely of front line footage recorded by combat cameramen. Much of this film has never appeared on video before and some sequences â€“ only now discovered in the Movietone archives â€“ have never been shown publicly before. The entire land campaign is covered in considerable detail, including rare colour film, the daring Chindit operations behind enemy lines, Gurkha troops in battle and the horrific treatment of British POWs on the â€˜Burma Death Railwayâ€™. Land and sea operations are also covered, with a look at vital aerial supply operations â€˜Over the Humpâ€™, never before seen sequences of RAF â€˜Hurribombersâ€™ and Beaufighters in action, a Japanese reconstruction of the attack on â€˜Task Force Zâ€™ and British aircraft carriers in action.
