520 |a "There is no single volume which covers the Indian Army's experiences during the two World Wars. And this is what ... [this] volume attempts to do. This collection of 17 essays ... analyze the army as an institution and also touch upon the cultural ethos of the army and related social issues. Thus, this edited volume is a cross between 'traditional military history' (study of campaigns, tactics, leadership) and 'new military history' (impact of warfare of society and culture). While some of the essays take a pan Indian perspective, a few essays also focus on those regions within India (like Punjab) which were intimately related with the army. A few contributors also turn the spotlight on the overseas theatres like Mesopotamia, France and Burma, where the Indian Army played a very important role"--Introduction.
