The British Fourteenth Army was a multinational force comprising units from Commonwealth countries during World War II. Many of its units were from the Indian Army as well as British units and there were also significant contributions from West and East African divisions within the British Army.
It was often referred to as the "Forgotten Army" because its operations in the Burma Campaign were overlooked by the contemporary press, and remained more obscure than those of the corresponding formations in Europe for long after the war. At one point it held the longest battle line, from the Bay of Bengal to the borders of India and China.
The Army was responsible for the successful defence of India and the subsequent defeat of Japanese forces in Burma. In June 1945 14th Army was withdrawn to India to prepare for the invasion of Malaya,14th.Army's exploits are very well known and after enduring the appalling conditions of the jungles of the far-east secured great victories in the Arakan at Imphal,Kohima,Mandalay,Meiktila,and many more that led to the liberation of Burma and Malaya. whence the HQ was deployed in September. The Army was disbanded on 31 December 1945.
