    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubLike most Americans I know almost nothing about the Burmese theater in World War II However many years ago I did read George McDonald Fraser's excellent memoir of it Quartered Safe Out Here so I suppose I do know than most This slender book is set mostly in that theater and inspired by the author's father's own service in Burma as part of the King's African Rifles seeks to both remind the reader of its relevance and the role of the many West African troops mostly Nigerian who were sent there to fight on behalf of the Allied forcesThe result is a bit of an odd duck a series of sketches than a fully realized narrative The book is littered with nuggets of history research and championing that while interesting don't feel quite like they belong So for example we learn enough intriguing details about Janan General Wingate that one's interest is perhaps

    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubCracking good story by turns comic and horrific of a Nigerian boy who two years into WW2 enlists with the Royal West African Field Force to fight in Burma for King George Proud quick tongued and thirteen years old he is not easily domesticated to army discipline the comic possibilites are fully exploited Diverted by an inopportune case of small pox to General Orde Wingate's Chindits a special forces brigade formed to operate behind Japanese lines Ali Banana has an especially grueling war marching through an alien landscape from air drop to air drop engaging and trying to disengage from the Japanese but always tempered by the camaraderie of his section and his own naïveté The seven other members of his section all West

    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubPlotwise like a mix of Good Soldier Svejk and Inglourious Basterds as a troop of Nigerian colonial soldiers are sent into the jungles of Burma to fight the Japanese on their own turf teach them to fear the jungle in the name of King George There's good stuff here but the tone never quite sits right with me the mix of horror and dry irony not quite jelling and a feeling that it could have benefitted from being longer

    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubEvery now and then you read some galling statistic about how many American adults think the Germans attacked at Pearl Harbor in 1861 and if you’re like me and really you wouldn’t be reading this if you weren’t you always feel a heady mix of horror and amour propre With a historically minded papa and books on WWII in the house than you could shake an Enfield at I thought I was pretty well up on the conflict so I was surprised and chagrined to learn of an entire theater I’d never heard about Burma where thousands of Japanese and British troops perished in brutal battle over some of the most inhospitable territory of the war And like so many discoveries of mine it came through art one night Turner Classic Movies broadcast the 1956 Best Foreign Film Oscar winner Kon Ichikawa’s haunting The Burmese Harp about a young Japanese soldi

    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubA short fictional story set in WWII Burma is somewhat interesting in its depiction of African Nigerian mostly soldiers fighting for the British It does not convey much about the actual events of the War in that theater focusing instead on the soldiers who come across as a bit simple in their cultural beliefs fables sayings innocence you might say The central character from time to time is the young 13 year old boy who struggles to become a soldier to go to war for the adventure of it With only occasional exceptions however the author does not develop the various characters sufficiently to differentiate one from another and fails to make the reader really 'care' about them The author does create a good feel for the nature of jungle warfare and of course the whole war is hell themeIt's just an 'okay' book in my rating scheme but I upped it to Three Stars partly because it was short and I didn't waste a huge amount of time to finish it it had a few instances of

    PDFEPUB Biyi BandeleThomas ↠ PDFEPUB Burma Boy eBook ¼ ↠ salbutamol ventolin onlineinfo burma ebok, Burma Boy EpubI needed a quick read for a slumpbuster and this book performed as required A quick read with moments of humor The King's Rifle is provides an interesting perspective of Chindit soldiers during world war II Although I felt that the book was factually remiss at times I enjoyed the light heartedness of a book with such serious events transpiring every couple of pages This book could have easily been YA if not for some inappropriate subject matter Would I highly recommend this book? No Should you read it if you have a couple of hours and nothing else to read? Yes Reading the story made me feel like Bandele did not finish
