Indian Army in East Africa (1914-1918)

S.D. Pradhan (Author)
Synopsis Indian Army in East Africa contains all the elements of a good military study, including strategy, troop morale, topography and leadership. The manner in which the German General Vorbeck’s vastly outnumbered force was able to remain unconquered throughout the War applying a variant form of gureilla warfare surrendering only when Germany capitulated in Europe, reveals the personality of an outstanding leader. Pradhan’s thorough investigation of the role of Indian soldiers in East Africa during world War-I makes fascinating reading. On the other hand, the fighting spirit of the Indian soldiers, fighting in an alien land against a well entrenched enemy, is given its long overdue recognition.
