A tribute to Our Heroes: How Indian Soldiers in the Imperial Army won World War II against Fascist and Nazi forces

The 2nd World War is considered a battle of ideals. On one side stood the Fascist regimes of Germany and Italy and their anti-Semitic policies, while on other stood Britain and the United States with their advocacy for democracy and republic. However, a part of this epic saga that is often lost in translation is the military contribution of Indian soldiers across the globe for the British campaign.
