Description

When the First World War raged from 1914 to 1918, hundreds of thousands troops fought valiantly and millions of lives were lost. Much has been written about the Allies' (Britain, France and other European powers, Russia, the United States, Canada) battles with the opposing Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Italy, Turkey) but few know that 1....38 million men from India were also sent to various theatres of war. As many as seven Indian Expeditionary Forces fought battles far from home. Whether it was the damp, flat fields of Flanders or the burning sands of Mesopotamia, the rocky, cold and windy hills of Gallipoli or unhealthy uplands and stifling jungles of East Africa, Indian soldiers left indelible imprints of their heroism, winning world-wide acclaim. For the first time, this book fills in the abysmal gap in the records of the war. Drawn from archives, regimental histories and other sources, this book tells the story of the tremendous contribution of the Indian Corps to the victory of the Allied forces.
