I. The Siege of Kohima – Stalingrad of the East (1944)
By House of History
One of Japan’s last offensives during the Second World War was Operation U-Go. In March 1944, over 80,000 Japanese soldiers under the extremely aggressive general Renya Mutaguchi crossed the Indian border. They rapidly advanced on the British strongholds of Imphal and Kohima. What followed was nearly three months of siege and, consequently, deplorable living conditions for both the Allied and Japanese powers. The battle of Kohima and the simultaneous Battle of Imphal saw troops from both sides suffer inhumane, horrid conditions. It earned the Battle of Kohima the nickname: “Stalingrad of the East”. Eventually, an Allied breakthrough was forced with a curious tactic involving the slope of a hill, a tank, and a hail mary of crashing through the Japanese lines of defence.
