The Story of a Burma Boy in Britain's Forgotten Army
In December 1941 the Japanese invaded Burma. For the British, the longest land campaign of the Second World War had begun. 100,000 African soldiers were taken from Britain’s colonies to fight the Japanese in the Burmese jungles. They performed heroically in one of the most brutal theatres of war, yet their contribution has been largely ignored.
In his series of books ABCs of Jazz Piano, Dr. Bill Pruett, recording artist and award-winning composer, shows you how to improvise in the jazz style, beginning with the easiest and most basic concepts. Bill Pruett has taught university students as well as adults and kids who were just starting to play piano. You will discover how much fun it is…
Isaac Fadoyebo was one of those Burma Boys’. At the age of sixteen he ran away from his Nigerian village to join the British Army. Sent to Burma, he was attacked and left for dead in the jungle by the Japanese. Sheltered by courageous local rice farmers, Isaac spent nine months in hiding before his eventual rescue. He returned to Nigeria a hero, but his story was soon forgotten. Barnaby Phillips travelled to Nigeria and Burma in search of Isaac, the family who saved his life, and the legacy of an Empire. Another Man’s War is Isaac’s story.
