Burma 1942: The Japanese Invasion by Ian Lyall Grant & Kazuo
"The loss of Burma has
been from a strategical point of view our most serious reverse of the Japanese war.
It has deprived our Chinese allies of a flow of munitions to continue their long
resistance; it has made the establishment of air bases within effective range of Japan a
matter of extreme difficulty; it has exposed India to the threat of invasion; and it has
had a disastrous effect on British prestige in the East. The reasons for this
reverse merit some examination."
Gen Sir Archibald Wavell, 14th July 1942
