The XIVth Army race to clear the battlefield of diehard Japanese defenders and make their way to Rangoon, for a well deserved Scotch and Soda, before closing time at the bar of the Strand Hotel (if the Japanese haven't destroyed the famous hostelry during their dastardly occupation!).

Despite losing a Lee tank to a well dug-in Chi-Ha, and an India Pattern Carrier to a well placed 47mm A/T gun, the British kept their cool and winkled out the Japanese defenders, helped by the fact that the Japanese were prone to launching suicidal Banzai charges, rather than holding their defensive their positions.

Very nicely done.

The Lee and Grants don't get enough recpgnition for what they did in this campaign. Nice inclusion of the India Pattern Carriers too.
