Right here’s how AfterShock describes The Lion and the Eagle #4:
Finally, the Chindits are on the transfer, though by no means within the course they had been hoping. As vengeful Japanese forces descend on the dwindling little band, British and Gurkha alike should combat like animals to outlive. And to Alistair’s horror, Keith should now take advantage of horrible determination of all.
In a press release again when the collection was first introduced, Garth Ennis described shedding mild on a little-known facet of World Conflict II:
“The battle between the British and Japanese in Burma is sort of misplaced to historical past now; certainly, the British troopers who fought there got here to check with themselves as The Forgotten Military. That’s partly what drew me to their story, an opportunity to maintain alive the recollections of the boys who confronted Imperial Japan. There’s additionally the political facet, as the 2 warring nations discover themselves combating for possession of Burma and India, two international locations who by and huge would have most well-liked to have neither of those overseas powers on their soil.
Lastly there’s the sheer depth and savagery of the fight. The British made what appeared like a daring strategic play in airlifting an enormous power of extremely educated males behind enemy traces; sadly they didn’t reckon with both the tenacity of the Japanese or the sheer lethality of the jungle itself. The battle within the Far East was famously missing in humanity, with not one of the occasional civility that leavened the slaughter of the Anglo-American-German battle. The Japanese neither gave nor requested for quarter, and the British power quickly discovered themselves in an unusually vicious wrestle to the loss of life.”
