This account reveals the hidden history of the country during the conflict. Through the voices of ordinary people - soldiers, nurses, peasants, labourers and prostitutes - it shows how mobilization introduced seismic economic, social and cultural change that shaped the war, hastened the unravelling of the British Empire and set the course of India's future.
