Abstract

During World War II, few Burmese people realize why they had become “the grass under two fighting buffaloes.” During the operations local folk shared the misfortunes of war which was wide spread, from North-East Asia and China to the whole of Southeast Asia. The work relates the stories of Japanese soldiers who fought in Burma. For them more unforgettable are the events during the Imphal campaign and the battles in the Hukawng valley, the upper Thanlwin River (Salouen) regions. But the Thai-Burma Death Railway, for which 30.000 young Burmese were drafted for hard labor and eventually perished, has also left bad memories among other Southeast Asians and the Burmese. - (GL)
