Stand at Kohima 

Stand at Kohima (Burma Campaign) - Kohima was isolated in the Japanese advance towards India and without an air-strip the small garrison of 3,500 faced 15,000 Japanese. From the heights above the town the enemy was blasting everything but the men at Kohima had a job to do and that is what they did for sixteen days and nights they stopped the Japanese advance.
