Extra Info    From 1941 to 1945, American, British, and Chinese troops fought side-by-side to accomplish their shared goal of driving Japanese aggressors -- the Axis -- out of China, Burma, and India (CBI). In a time before the Internet, in a land so vast and backward that it barely had telephone service, how did these young soldiers manage to accomplish this? The logistics, geographic, and communication barriers were monumental. Who led them to victory in spite of these complex international problems? Six different Commanders of the CBI Theatre of War from 1941-1945 will be discussed, including their leadership and style differences, their missions and methods, and what this revolving door of command meant to young troops struggling to live another day and make it home from World War II China.
