The Road to Mandalay describes Japan's conquest of Asia in Victory at Sea
2 July 2007 | by tavmSee all my reviews

This episode details Japan's invasion of China in 1936 and subsequent conquest of Burma after Pearl Harbor before China's liberation was aided by the Allies especially the British as they come back to the Mandalay crossing that helped make victory possible...Lots of info for a segment that dealt with how obsessed Japan was with conquering the world starting with its Asian neighbor, China. India is also mentioned as one of the Allies that received supplies in the fight against the House of the Rising Sun. As always, stirring narration and music by, respectively, Leonard Graves and Richard Rodgers help make this episode of Victory at Sea as exciting as it is. Most highly recommended for World War II history buffs and anyone interested in real-life drama presented on film.
