109. THE RAJ AT WAR: A PEOPLE’S HISTORY OF INDIA’S SECOND WORLD WAR

Baillie Gifford Tent, Sun 1st July 13:30 - 14:30 (60 mins)

The Second World War was not fought by Britain alone. India produced the largest volunteer army in world history: over 2 million men. Yasmin Khan will present the overlooked history of India at war, and will show how mobilisation for the war unleashed seismic processes of economic, cultural and social change – decisively shaping the international war effort, the unravelling of the empire and India’s own political trajectory.
