000-year-old site on the banks of the Tigris river,Forgotten Army? Both official accounts and popular historiesincluding Hollywood moviesfocused overwhelmingly on combat on the European fronts In the new millenniuma group of British military officersincluding some academicsstarted arguing that combat against Japan in Burma was as important as fighting against Hitlers Festung Europa The new genre of operational historians started claiming that Slim was a greater general than Bernard Montgomerythe man who defeated Erwin Rommel in Normandy Some Indian writers claimed that Indians played a prominent role on both sides during the climactic confrontation at Imphal and Kohima In realityhow important was Imphal-Kohima in the context of global warfare And how important was the role of the Indians in this campaign Despite the assertion of some populist writersthe Japanese strategic aim in launching U-Go was not to conquer Indiabut to occupy the important military bases of Imphal and Kohima in order to disrupt the Allied ground offensivewhich the Japanese rightly predicted would be launched into central Burma in mid-1944 It is true that 70 per cent of the personnel in Slims army were Indians There was only one British division and two African divisions in Burma The rest of the five infantry divisions comprised of Indians Howevermost commissioned officers in even the Indian divisions were British Some over-emphasise the role played by the Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army/ INA) in the Imphal-Kohima campaign Only 7000 INA personnel participated in this campaign Moreoverthey were neither trained nor equipped for frontline combat They were assigned rear area security tasks The Japanese aim was to use these units for encouraging sedition and rebellion among the Indians behind British lines Howeverthe INA failed to perform these tasks The Nagas around Imphal and Kohima sided with the British and hated the Japanesedue to the latters pillage and plundering of village livestocks Actuallythe Japanese had no optionas their supply line from Chindwin was in ruins while the 14th Army enjoyed the luxury of air supply The British armed many Nagas for self-defence Military training imparted to them by British officers in wartime and the capture of weapons of retreating Japanese soldiers enabled the Nagas to conduct armed insurgency against independent India in the 1950s Moreoverthe jawans remained loyal to their white masters and shot at the INA personnel Regimental loyalty prevented mutiny among the British-officered Indian soldiery Only the demobilisation of the 18 million strong Indian army in August 1942 and the British failure to provide the demobilised jawans with jagirs and jobs turned them against the Raj But that is a separate story How important was U-Go in terms of lethality in the context of der totale krieg About 157000 Allied troops were used to counter the Japanese invasion in 1944 The Imperial Japanese Army (IJA) had about five divisions in Burma (including one in Arakan and another in north Burma deployed against Joseph Stilwells Chinese-American troops) In comparisonsome 356000 Allied soldiers jostled at Normandy And the Wehrmacht had 58 divisions to defend west Europe Between February and July 1944the 14th Army suffered 24000 casualties (including 12000 at Imphal and 4000 at Kohima) The corresponding figure for the IJA was around 90000 Of the Wehrmacht troops in Normandy250000 became casualties after the German defeat at Falaise Gap on 21 August 1944 SoImphal-Kohima was a smaller affair than Normandy Howeverboth these battles were chicken feed compared to what was going on in the Ostfront In the summer of 1944Stalin launched Operation Bagration By the end of 1944the Red Army had advanced from Smolensk to the outskirts of Warsaw The Wehrmacht suffered almost a million casualties The point to be noted is that 70 per cent of the Wehrmacht was always on the eastern front Soif any battle could be categorised as decisiveit had to have been one fought on the Russian front Historical perception is different from historical reality Every nation uses history for national mythmaking and a professional historians thankless job is to blast the myths and counter-myths of history To concludeImphal-Kohima was not a world shaking event and the INA (despite its post-1947 importance) was merely a cog in the wheel The writer is a Kolkata-based senior researcher at the
