World War II

Imphal Airport was a major Allied supply base. The Allies could fly men, equipment and supplies into the airstrips at Imphal (and Palel also, until the onset of the monsoon rains) so although cut off by land, the town was not without a lifeline. Allied aircraft could also parachute ammunition, rations and even drinking water to the encircled combat units during the Battle of Imphal, when Japanese forces attempted to invade India, but were driven back into Burma with heavy losses.
