Publishing to coincide with VJ Day on 10th August 2020.
We are delighted to announce the publication of this new book - the UK edition of "Road to Kohima" by Charles Chasie and Harry Fecitt MBE, TD.
A unique collaboration between a senior Naga journalist and a British historian, looking at Naga involvement in the Battle of Kohima, which was instrumental in halting the Japanese invasion of India. The book illustrates the ordinary civilian experience, details military events in Kohima, and explains the Naga participation as soldiers. Through personal stories, the book tells how Naga lives were affected and how village life was pieced back together once the war moved on.
It is the authors' wish that all royalties from the sale of this book go towards the work of the Kohima Educational Trust (KET)
This edition has a foreword by our trustee, historian & author Dr Robert Lyman, who discusses the book in the video below, and an introduction by award-winning Naga novelist Easterine Kire.
