Sowars and Sepoys in the Great War 1914-1918: Cavalry and Infantry Regiments
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of History.
2014 (English)Book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

India went to war in Europe in 1914 to plug the gaps on the Allied line of defence. Her army wasn't trained to fight a war of an industrial nature and they were equipped as part of British Policy with obsolete weapons. Yet they managed to save the honour of Britain. Over the next four years, India would recruit over 1.4 million troops and send over 1.3 million overseas to defend the British Empire — a force substantially bigger than the combined troops of Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and the biggest voluntary army in history of Mankind. This book attempts to record the Indian contribution of its main fighting arms the Cavalry and Infantry regiments.
