Back To Mandalay

242 pages4 hours


Acclaimed author Lowell Thomas recounts the gripping story of the Second Chindit expedition in the Japanese-held Burmese jungle. It provides a fascinating account of British General Orde Wingate and American Army Air Force pilot Philip Cochran, (the famous ‘Flip Corkin’ from the Terry and the Pirates comic strip), and the story of their brilliant operations behind enemy lines during World War II.

“The incredible tale of the conquest of the Burma jungle with gliders is one of the great adventure classics of modern times. Mr. Thomas has combined historical research with his fast paced adventure style to give his tremendous audience a book which is certain to rank with his famous 'Lawrence in Arabia'.”
