This is an amazing book. This is a subject whose scope I doubt most non-Indian and quite a few Indian people realize. The author is a wonderful and engaging writer. Though it is somewhat technical in terms of the military aspects; i.e., battles fought, tactics used, structure of the British and Indian military forces, the story doesn't get bogged down by these details. I wouldn't classify this as military history, so much as a social history of the war that includes the military aspect.

Learning that there were 2.5 million Indian soldiers who fought in Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and even Europe and what these experiences led to in Indian history was fascinating.

For anyone interested in understanding the dynamics of the 20th Century, this book deserves to be read!

Kudos to Srinath Raghavan!
