Japanese Armies invaded an almost defenseless Burma in 1942, sending tens of thousands fleeing over the mountains to India. Violet's Flight narrates the experiences of a young Anglo-Burmese girl and her relatives growing up happily under the British and their ordeal either escaping the Japanese or living under the occupation or fighting in the resistance. The battles won by the allied armies coming out of India to retake Burma in 1944-45 are seen through the eyes of Japanese officers. The Anglo- Burmese girl leaves post-war Burma for the West. “... not a read to be missed, highly recommended,”—The Midwest Book Review.
