An overview of one of the most extraordinary achievements of military engineering of the second world war and as well as the twentieth century - the building of a road stretching all the way from India to China, cutting through dense jungle and blasting through impassable mountains - all while under constant threat of attack by the Japanese. The history of the Allies in Asia during the whole of the war is also analysed, specifically concentrating on the engineering and logistical on the one hand, and the constant battle and military campaigning on the ground and in the air on the other. Also includes archival footage of Gen. "Vinegar Joe" Stilwell, Gen. Bill Slim, Flying Tigers Gen. Claire Chennault, Pres. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, Gen. Claude Auchinleck, Adm. Ernest J. King, Gen. George C. Marshall, Adm. Chester W. Nimitz, Gen. Archibald Wavell & more.
The Burma Road, also known as the Stilwell Road after U.S. General Joseph Stilwell, was a road linking Burma with the southwest of China. Its terminals were Kunming, Yunnan, and Lashio, Burma. It was built while Burma was a British colony in order to convey supplies to China during the Second Sino-Japanese War. Preventing the flow of supplies on the road helped motivate the occupation of Burma by the Empire of Japan in 1942. Use of the road was restored to the Allies in 1945 after the completion of the Ledo Road. Some parts of the old road are still visible today.
