While their story is almost always overlooked, the 1.5 million Indian soldiers who served the British Empire in World War I played a crucial role in the eventual Allied victory. Despite their sacrifices, Indian troops received mixed reactions from their allies and their enemies alike: some were treated as liberating heroes, some as mercenaries and conquerors themselves, and all as racial inferiors and a threat to white supremacy. Yet even as they fought under the imperial British flag, their broadened horizons raised new hopes of equality and freedom on the path to Indian independence. Incorporating recently rediscovered interviews with members of the Indian Army, George Morton-Jack tells a story of courage, colonization, and racism to finally give these men their rightful place in history.
