Published by Bloomsbury. 1st. 2015
Fine condition in a nearly fine dustwrapper. The personal stories of some of the Indian soldiers who went to the Western Front: from a grand turbaned Maharaja raring to fight for the Empire to an illiterate peasant who won the Victoria Cross; from a sweeper who accompanied the troops only to die in an English hospital to a young pilot, barely out of school, who brought down German airplanes. Burgundy boards, blue & gilt title to spine. Colour & b/w photos.
A few grubby marks to verso of dustwrapper.
