·An account of the Indian involvement in WW1, a subject rarely talked about

·A visual record of Indian military involvement in Europe, this volume pays tribute to the courage of the men who served their countries with distinction and pride

·Accompanied by 120 color photographs

As Britain declared war on Germany on 4 August 1914, Lord Hardinge, the Viceroy of India, announced that India too was at war, without consulting Indian political leaders. Yet the responses to the war within India, both from the native princes and the political elite, were largely enthusiastic. Of all the colonies in the British, French and German empires of the time, British India (comprising present-day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma) contributed the highest number of men. Of them, over a million served overseas between August 1914 and December 1919. This book is a visual record of their lives in Europe - in trenches, fields, farms, billets, markets, towns, cities, railway-stations, hospitals, prisoner-of-war camps - as well as the world they had left behind in India. It documents the relentless routine of travel, and the way we remember these brave men who traveled so far from home to fight another country's war. The year 2014 marks the centenary of the start of the First World War, and this book is part of a series of commemorative events to be held over the coming four years to remember and honor those who served with distinction, bravery and pride.
