Montagu Stopford commanded XXXIII Indian Corps at Dimapur during the Imphal campaign. Slim praised him for the speed with which he made his inexperienced corps headquarters effective. XXXIII Indian Corps later became the hammer with which Slim smashed the Japanese against the anvil of IV Corps in central Burma.
