Product Description


'Extremely stimulating and should appeal to academics and enthusiasts alike; it is a must-read for students of the First World War. Morton-Jack's approach to the fighting record of the Indians sets this book apart from its predecessors … [It] is so much more than a simple account of the Indian Army on the Western Front. Morton-Jack has produced a volume that incorporates almost every strand of current research on the BEF. It is a very welcome addition to First World War literature and could well prove to be a framework for future works.' Adam Prime, Reviews in History (

'A compelling account of an army trained to fight in the mountains of the North-West Frontier and thrust instead into the mire of a European war.' Tom Coghlan, The Times

'An excellent military history, and should be the first reference point for those curious about battles fought by Indian troops in Europe.' Vedica Kant, The Caravan (

'By shining the light on a little discussed subject, this book fills a big hole in the literature on the war.' Mihir Bose, History Today

'George Morton-Jack's deeply researched writing is accessible and rewarding.' David Filsell, Stand-To

Book Description

The Indian army fought alongside the British Expeditionary Force on the Western Front from 1914 to 1918, but analysis of its performance tends to deem this a failure. Examining the tactical, operational and administrative performance of the Indian army, this groundbreaking study reconsiders its contribution and combat effectiveness.
