Author: JOHN MASTERS
Title: The Road past Mandalay. A Personal Narrative. UNCORRECTED PROOF COPY
Description: "Michael Joseph, " "8vo., Uncorrected Proof Copy, with title-vignette; original printed wrappers, a very good, clean copy. Effectively a sequel to his splendid 'Bugles and a Tiger' (1956). Masters served as a middle-ranking officer in Burma throughout the war. This striking personal record of service with Gurkhas and Chindits (including his participation in Operation BLACKPOOL) therefore stands between the more usually recorded views of generals and private soldiers. Includes illuminating portraits of Slim, Wingate and Stilwell among others. PROOF COPIES ARE VERY SCARCE. Enser, p.90; not recorded by Graham & Cole, which lists only the US (Harper) edition as M55."
Keywords: "mstock, military, ww2, british army, burma, malaya, wingate, chindits, gurkhas, modern firsts"
