A photograph from the height of the civil war in March 1949, when the government barely controlled Rangoon, showing troops of the Burma Army preparing for battle against communist forces to the north (it was around the time a combined Communist - Karen assault had overrun Mandalay and several other towns in Upper Burma and the front lines around the capital had reached Insein and Mingaladon).
