Summary
The Second World War was not fought by Britain alone. India produced the largest volunteer army in world history: 2.5 million men. This book presents a comprehensive account of the developments on India's turbulent home front, and the nexus between warfare and India's society. Yasmin Khan presents the hidden and sometimes overlooked history of India at war, and shows how mobilisation for the war introduced seismic processes of economic, cultural and social change - decisively shaping both the international war effort, the unravelling of the empire and India's own political and economic trajectory
