The China-Burma-India (CBI) Theater of
World War II








The goal of the Allies in the CBI theater was to supply and reinforce the Chinese forces in their fight against the Japanese invaders.  Japan occupation of China's seaports had cut off the normal supply route.  Therefore, the Allies moved equipment, personnel and supplies to China through India (by flying the "Hump Route" over the Himalayas) and Burma (through construction of roads and pipelines).
