The Battle of Imphal and Kohima, was fought in various phases in 1944. It was a turning point in the Second World War fought on the Indian subcontinent between the Japanese & the British. The battle sites are spread across present –day northeastern states of Manipur and Nagaland. Outside of these two states not much is known of this period. Indian historians credit the Second World War as a whole for a drastic hit to the fortunes of the British Empire but the northeast played a big role in this.
