30 September - 2 October 2016, Burma 1942, Van, TX

BURMA, 1942
Reenactment to be held at
Van, Texas
30 September - 2 October 2016

The event will portray the early war setbacks for the 17th Indian Infantry Division of the British Indian Army in Burma against the invading forces of the Japanese 15th Army.  The scenario will be the withdrawal to the Sittang River and the ultimate destruction of the 46th Indian Infantry Brigade of the 17th IID.  Burm is still the longest capaign and the longest fighting withrawal in the history of the British Army.  The scenarios will consist of a fighting withdrawal through the complex wooded terrain, water crossings and clearings on the west side of the event site on the map below.  Several commonwealth strongpoints and roadblocks along with supply dumps and HQ positions will have to be outflanked and taken by the Japanese in their conquest of Burma on their way to India.
