Fort Dufferin in Mandalay, Burma falls to British and Indian troops on March 20, 1945 following a 12 day siege. Includes footage of low level attacks by B25s using 2000 lb. demolition bombs with delayed action fuses. I have combined footage from two Bulletins for this one so there is a little repetition, but not too much. Most of the action is in the second part when they throw just about everything at the thick walls in an effort to breach them. Surrounded by four massive 2km long walls and a 210 foot wide moat situated 60 feet beyond them, Mandalay Palace (renamed Fort Dufferin by the British) was a formidable obstacle to the capture of Mandalay.

Mandalay Palace located in Mandalay, Myanmar, is the last Royal palace of the last Burmese monarchy. The palace was constructed, between 1857 and 1859 as part of King Mindon's founding of the new royal capital city of Mandalay. The plan of Mandalay Palace largely follows the traditional Burmese palace design, inside a walled fort surrounded by a moat. The palace itself is at the center of the citadel and faces east. All buildings of the palace are of one story in height. The number of spires above a building indicated the importance of the area below. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandalay_Palace.

The floating Karaweik Palace Restaurant on Kandawgyi Lake is one of the landmarks of Yangon. This modern architecture of a mythical creature Karaweik Hall was constructed in 1972. Superb buffet style dinner with many traditional dishes to try. Good service and great cultural show.Traditional dance performances are normally held here in the evenings.
Burma has an ancient royal history which has left behind many magnificent monuments across the country. The Konbaung dynasty, founded by King Alaungpaya in 1752, was the 3rd Burmese empire and throughout their reign Burma reached her peak of size and power. For about a century Burma dominated the region but in the 1800's a series of wars broke out with the British. The last native King of Burma was Thibaw Min who reigned from 1878 to 1885. After his defeat in the Third Anglo-Burmese War he was deposed by the British and shipped off to exile in India after which Burma became part of the British Empire of India. Mandalay was the last royal capital and is still regarded as the cultural heart of Burma with many breathtaking monuments, temples and a rebuilt palace complex.
Mandalay is the one second largest city in Myanmar. One of the very crowed tourist spot. Mandalay palace is one of the famous attraction for tourist. Total Mandalay Palace is surrounded by lot of Fort. Got some view from 66th street, Mandalay.
