This magnificent book is an essential sequel to "Forgotten Armies." The action in the previous book focuses on the events during World War II when the Japanese punctured the British image. This book carries on. The authors noted that, for the world, the Great War was over but, not for people in Asia.

Here, the wars and struggles persisted, sometimes into the 1950s. However, the events lead to the independence of the countries in this arc.

The web of interconnected events is complex. However, the authors - like in the previous book - have been magnificent. They have constructed a book that you can follow, if you read with care.

These books are for the reading and, the rereading.

During the second world war, events sowed the seeds of the end of the British Empire in South Asia and South East Asia. When the Japanese defeated the British Forces in South East Asia, they broke the myth of British invincibility.

Historians have not focussed on the events of the wars and armies of the times. However, these events were crucial in the history of SE Asia and South Asia. These events provided the foundation for future events.

Christopher Bayly and Tim Harper have written a detailed account of the times. The book is fascinating and important for us living today. Too many politicians manipulate the past and this book serves as an excellent reminder of what took place.

The authors have woven a coherent tale from a complex web of interconnected stories. Kudos.

Muy buen libro sobre el período post segunda guerra de descolonización en el Extremo Oriente. Bien documentado y detallado, dos datos que me sorprendieron como se mezcla el tema racial con el político y la tensión entre los grupos locales y los inmigrantes chinos, en Malasia y Singapur, el estado desastroso de las potencias luego de la segunda guerra, que no tenían capacidad ni para mandar un solo soldado a la región
