This World War II documentary, narrated by actor (and future U.S. President) Ronald Reagan, focuses on the China-India-Burma front of the war. The Stillwell Road (named after American General Joseph Stillwell, whose idea it was) was an engineering marvel whose purpose was to truck supplies to the Chinese army fighting the Japanese in China. It started in India, cut through the almost impenetrable jungles and mountains of Burma, and ended in China.
