Description

A brilliantly original history of the First World War, re-tracing the footsteps of the Indian Army’s 1.5 million men who in 1914-18 served about the globe from Europe to Africa, Asia and the Indian Ocean. After years of neglect, The Indian Empire at War raises the curtain on the Indian soldiers’ personal experiences fighting for the Allies against the Central Powers, and returning home to play their part in the Indian Independence movement.
