$38.00

The Indian army contributed a number of divisions and independent brigades to the European, Mediterranean and the middle east theatres of war in world war 1. One million Indian troops would serve overseas, of who 74,187 died during the war.

In world war 1 the Indian army fought against the German empire in German east Africa and on the western front. At the first battle of Ypres, Khudadad Khan became the first Indian to be awarded a Victoria cross. Indian divisions were also sent to Egypt, Gallipoli and nearly 700,000 served in Mesopotamia against the ottoman empire. While some divisions were sent overseas others had to remain in India guarding the north west frontier and on internal security and training duties. This book details India's contribution to the great war in terms of manpower, money and material. It is a source of information for all readers interested in the history of the Indian army.
