I am doing some research on the fighting at Meiktila for a book of wargaming scenarios. The book will conwsist of "scenarios" or small fights/battles. These will be compnay level fights with normally a infantry company, some support weapons and maybe a tank platoon. (think Pegasus Bridge).
There are plenty of books on Kohima. However there is precious little on Mekitila other than:
Osprey Campaign 136
Pearson's book "End Game Burma" (which is quite useless for my requirements.
I have both the British and Indian offical history. And while good they often don't include info down at the company level.
Does anyone know of any books on the history of the 17th Indian Division or any of its component infantry battlions:
48th Indian Bde: 9th Bn , Border Rgt, 2/5 Royal Gurkha Rifles, 1/7th Gurkha Rifles
