Beginning as a student leader and activist in the 1930s, Aung San went on to assume prominent leadership positions in Burma's nationalist movement. At the beginning of World War II, he organized a clandestine trip to Japan in search of funds and military training in order to fight against British imperialism, but his close-knit group Thirty Comrades found it necessary to resist not only the British, but also the Japanese. In the postwar years, Aung San became Burma's chief negotiator for independence from Britain, focusing much of his energy on promoting cooperation and unity among Burma's many ethnic groups. Aung San's tragic assassination in 1947 at the age of 32 denied him the privilege of seeing his country claim the freedom and unity to which he had dedicated his life.

    this book told us about the journey of Burma's hero.at first people think that he is crazy but young Aung San proved his talent in politics with his smart political play, charisma, and honesty. In such a young age Aung San became the leader of various political movement that lead to one purpose, Burma's independence. During 1940s until his death he fought bravely against imperialism, He tried many way to bring freedom to Burmese peopleit is ironic that he died in such a young age before he completes his mission to bring Burma into full independence

    A workmanlike look at Aung San's life. Unfortunately relies very heavily on British official sources for the last years of the war. The author apparently conducted interviews with people who knew him well, but precious little color seeps in from that. Still, if you are interested in the history of Myanmar fills in the gap rather well, and fleshes the man out from the competing Marble Saint/Pro-Japanese Quisling interpretations of him you often see.

    Aung San was a very fine individual and it is certain that Burma would be in a better place than it is now if he had lived. Angelene Naw wrote about Aung in a very fine and free flowing style.

    A very well told story about the father of Aung San Su Kyi, who in many ways was at least as interesting, compelling and ultimately tragic a figure as his daughter.
