About the Book

This book, " World War II in Northeast India: A Study of Imphal and Kohima Battles" is the doctoral thesis of Khrienuo Ltu. It is a comprehensive study of the role of the local population of Manipur and the Naga Hills during the great attempted Japanese invasion of India. 

The Imphal and Kohima battles were part of the Burma Campaign which was fought during the Second World War between the British and the Japanese. The twin battles of Imphal and Kohima were fought simultaneously at the frontier of India. The Battle of Imphal began on March 8, 1944 and the Battle of Kohima on April 4, 1944. The geographical location of Kohima and Imphal made them strategically important as they were the gateway to India for the Japanese. In the two battles, the Japanese fought with an expansionist motive, while the British tried their best to protect their possession from the Japanese. The Japanese invasion of India was motivated mainly by three factors i.e. to defend and to keep hold of Burma from the British; to wipe out the British or Western Imperialist from the Asian countries; and importantly because Japan needed to boost her morale which was low due to their loss in the Pacific and Guadalcanal. It was not only the Japanese soldiers but even the people of Japan needed a "morale boosting" and "positive campaign" Imphal and Kohima were for the British, the defining land battles of the war in the East." The Japanese were not at ease with the British in India, as they feared that the British would attack them and recapture their conquered territories. Japan therefore wanted to expel the British from India. With the removal of the British from India, there would be no threat of a British invasion and, the Japanese Co-Prosperity Sphere could be kept intact.
