Summary: "Though the Great war is widely considered to have been a primarily European conflict, it had enormous effects halfway across the world, and especially in India. Largely overlooked by Indian history textbooks, many Indian nationalists believed that supporting Britain's war effort would benefit India's move towards self-government. As a result, over a million and a half Indians were encouraged to enlist, and subsequently deployed to fight for the British."--Book jacket.
