WWI Factions: The Indian army



Faction: The Indian Army

The First World War
When the war broke out in 1914 there was growing political unrest in India against British rule.

Germany had even tried to stir up anti-british movements and rebellion.

However such fears were put to rest when India rallied to Britain’s cause. It was believed that India’s proposal of independence could best be served this way.

  1. My great grandfather joined the Japanese in northeast India against the British (many other powerful chiefs also joined the war ) they also really hope the germans won the war since the germans promised to sent reinforcements after they win the war but they didn't and the cave where the Japanese general hide during ww2 is still visible and is near a mountain on the outskirts of my hometown

  2. Indians, Canadians, Australians, and more have died for the British. What did they get? Nothing much XD. No one in the west remembers Indias sacrifice, Australia isn't talked about much, Canada is also a bit forgotten.

  3. Please make Video about Indian National Army (INA) also Known as Azad Hind Fauj led by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose for India's Freedom from British Rule.

  4. My great grandfather was in the 125 napiers rifle INDIAN ARMY, and lost his life in a battlefield in france ww1, now he is the clan diety in our village and is remembered as a great kshtriya who sacrificed his life following his dharma.

    I cant thank simple history enough for keeping my great grandfathers legacy alive through this video, he still watches and smiles over us everyday of remeberence.
