CBI – China Burma India

The CBI theater (1941-45) has been dubbed «the forgotten theater» of WWII. Once the United States entered the war, American strategy called for building up China as a source of manpower, as a base for bombers and the eventual invasion of Japan. CBI produced some of the most impressive feats of engineering and logistics in American military history.
