Gen Joseph Stillwell's Burma campaign to reach Jambu Bum got underway on 8 March 1944. Chinese divisions were making progress in Burma, but the British faced a Japanese offensive that also threatened Stillwell's supply line.
Stillwell sent GALAHAD Force, Merrill's Marauders, in two sub-units to envelop the Japanese right flank and cut enemy communications in two places. The 1st Battalion moved through twenty miles of bamboo forests and took position on 27 March. #Armyhistory #USArmy #TRADOC
The battalion surprised an enemy camp at Shaduzup and established a roadblock. To their south Colonel Charles N. Hunter ordered a counter a Japanese attack on the Chinese left flank. The 3d Battalion occupied Janpan and the 2d Battalion took up positions at Nhpum Ga.
