Sakuraiís hard-marching 33rd Division drove General Slimís straggling British Burma Corps back through Burma toward the Indian border. The British rabble found itself bottlenecked as Schwegyin, where the road ended on the banks of the Chindwin River. The only way to continue the retreat was by riverboat to the roadís continuation six miles upstream. Six ferries shuttled back and forth, staging a pitiful evacuation effort. A battalion of Indian troops stood guard in the jungle with a screen of Gurkhas stationed forward with a radio. But on the morning of the 10th, there was no warning before tracer fire burst out of the jungle to rake the landing area. . .
