Contexte historique :
"Much the same amount of shit flying around, but the trouble with these Japanese bastards is that they don't run away like the Italians!'"
British soldier comparing Burma to North Africa

With the loss of Rangoon, the Army in Burma was now isolated from its main base in India and dependent for supplies on the stocks so carefully built up by General Hutton in the Mandalay area. The Allies knew the duration of their control of central and upper Burma would be determined only by the size of the force committed against them. The strategic objective now was to prevent the Japanese gaining control of the Yenangyaung oilfields. On April 16, the 1st Division of the British Army along the north side of Yenangyaung was besieged for two days and nights. Their situation was very critical as they were running out of provisions and munitions, and had been cut off from the water source. Hence, the 113th Regiment and a Chinese Expeditionary Force were ordered to immediately rush to their rescue.
The stage is set. the battle lines are drawn and you are in command. The rest is history.
