Indians in the First World War: The Missing Links

Aravind Ganachari (Author)

Indians in the First World War: The Missing Links is the first authoritative and complete academic account of the Indian participation in the First World War to be written by an Indian historian. The Great War involved significant Indian military contributions and casualties that are largely unheard of. The war also brought about major changes in the Indian social and political situation, caste structure and viewpoint regarding Indian identity, and fuelled the demand for India’s independence. This book carefully articulates and examines these crucial historic changes.  The book covers Indian perspectives on all major aspects—historical, social, political and religious, among others—that were instrumental in ensuring India’s participation in the war. Based on the author’s own research and deep familiarity with Indian history and contemporary political reality, the book throws new light on some major events during the war. It is an indispensable book that deserves to be read by anyone who is interested in gaining a more thorough understanding of India’s contribution to and standing in world history and politics.
